Two west Cumbrian women who viciously assaulted Britain's youngest ever lottery winner Callie Rogers have been jailed.

Carlisle Crown Court heard how Miss Roger's partner Jack Murray returned to his Whitehaven home in the early hours of July 2 to find Miss Rogers bloodied and battered.

She told him how her two attackers - Jade Ann Quayle , 27, of High Street, Cleator Moor, and Marie Alison Hinde, 38, of Pipers Court, Whitehaven - had subjected her to a sustained and terrifying assault.

Dragging her around the living room, they had kicked and punched her and and stamped on her head, Carlisle Crown Court heard. Both women later admitted assaulting Miss Rogers and causing her actual bodily harm.

Hinde also admitted intimidating a witness who went to the police after she told him what she and Quayle had done. In that conversation, Hinde herself had said that she and her co-defendant had acted "like animals."

Tim Evans, prosecuting, said on the night of the attack Miss Rogers had been out with Mr Murray in Workington, but they became separated and she took a taxi home. "She was drunk when she got home," said Mr Evans.

Earlier, Mr Murray had asked the defendants, who were neighbours, to look after his dog while he was out with Miss Rogers. After arriving home, she had collected the dog and took it back to Mr Murray's house.

The next thing Miss Rogers recalled was Hinde and Quayle being in the house.

That was when they attacked her.

"They came in and dragged her around like a rag doll," said the prosecutor. "She ended up on the floor. Both of them were kicking her repeatedly in her head and body. In particular, she could feel kicks to her face and stamping on her head and body."

Mr Rogers believes she eventually blacked out.

She suffered two black eyes, a burst nose, swollen lips, sore ribs, and a cracked tooth. She had to have four weeks off work.

When she was interviewed by police, Hinde - whose criminal record contains 29 previous offences which include violence - said she was at home with her partner when Callie Rogers appeared at the door, already injured.

"She claimed to have played the good samaritan," said Mr Evans. Quayle, with fewer previous convictions, denied having anything to do with the assault.

Anthony Parkinson, for Hinde, said she had expressed remorse and was resigned to going to jail. Andrew Ford, for Quayle, said his client was completely under the spell of her older co-defendant and unable to anything other than what Hinde told her.

Judge James Adkin jailed Hinde for 33 months and Quayle for 21 months. The judge also imposed a 10 year restraining order which will prevent either defendant contacting Miss Rogers, or Mr Murray, or the witness who was intimidated, in any way.

Miss Rogers became the UK's youngest National Lottery 15 years ago when she scooped £1.8 million.

Speaking on This Morning recently, she said: "I just wish I was a bit older at the time of winning it. At 16 you're still just a child and overnight you've just got to grow up and become an adult which is really difficult.

"There were people who came along after I won the lottery who weren't in my life before it and aren't in my life now. At the time you don't realise because you just want everyone to likeyou.

"I still struggle with trust due to it. I'm starting to be able to form friendships and trust people more than I used to."
