COURT CIRCULAR: The trial of Cheryl Tweedy has begun at Kingston Crown Court. The court was told that Tweedy "punched a female lavatory attendant over a handful of lollipops and swore at her, calling her a black bitch." While the prosecution was quick to warn the jury that her being part of Girls Aloud shouldn't sway their judgement of her - in either direction - they continued: "Having said that, the prosecution allege that part of the reason this offence occurred is no doubt because the defendant had allowed her recent success to go to her head that night, causing her to behave this way to a woman working as a lavatory attendant."

Tweedy denies racially aggravated assault occasioning actual bodily harm and assault occasioning actual bodily harm. The case continues.
