Keri Grattan

A woman who carried a pair of scissors in her handbag “for protection” and brandished them when joining a fracas outside a homeless hostel was jailed.

Keri Grattan threw them at Kieran George Sutton while he was embroiled in a confrontation with Kirk Joseph Edwards.

In April, the defendant was handed a six-month prison sentence, suspended for 12 months, and ordered to complete a 10-day rehabilitation activity requirement.

But Grattan was jailed at Newport Crown Court by Judge Daniel Williams after she breached its terms and the Probation Service said the community part of her order was “unworkable”.
