Two jealous women have been spared jail after carrying out a “shocking” attack involving high heel shoes on their ex-boyfriends’ new partners.

Chloe Morris and Kelsey Darby, both 24, attacked their exes’ new girlfriends outside the Black Swan pub in Nuneaton, Warwickshire, on 7 December 2018.

The pair, both from Nuneaton, admitted wounding and assault when they appeared at Warwick Crown Court on Monday.

They verbally abused Jessica Earp and Jodie Westwood, who were in new relationships with their ex-boyfriends, inside the pub, calling them “tramps” and “slags” before staff intervened.

After being ordered to leave, Morris and Darby waited outside the pub and shouted abuse at the two women through the window.
