The attack happened in Cottingham Road

An 18-year-old involved in a horrifying assault in Corby has been sentenced for her part in the attack.

A video taken by bystanders of the brutal kicking in Cottingham Road was viewed by thousands on social media. The footage showed a 16-year-old girl lying in the road one evening last July being kicked and stamped-on by other girls.

Rose Price, of Wareham Green, admitted actual bodily harm following the incident and appeared at Northampton Magistrates' Court on Monday (January 11) to be sentenced.

She was referred to Northamptonshire's youth offending team for nine months and ordered to pay compensation of £50. Magistrates told her she must also pay costs of £85 and a surcharge to fund victim services of £22.

Thankfully the victim suffered no lasting serious physical injuries.
