...we learnt Drunk jilted hairdresser cut off boyfriend's hair as he lay asleep in bed after he told her he was moving out - then slashed his tyres to stop him escaping
Jeanette Barrington, 56, (left, and right outside court) crept up to Steven Newton's bedside at their home in Worsley, Greater Manchester (inset), took out her own styling scissors and gave him a haircut. The 57-year-old, who was dressed only in his pyjama bottoms, broke free but was assaulted with the sharp tool before being pushed downstairs by the mother-of-four. He fled the house and jumped in his car but only got as far as the end of the road before realising his tyres were flat and took refuge at a neighbours house. Barrington admitted assault and criminal damage and was handed a six month prison sentence, suspended for two years.
