A WOMAN was hit over the head with a bottle during a fight with another woman at a Suffolk pub, it has been alleged.

Charlotte Triptree, 20, became involved with an argument with Kerry Hood in the beer garden of The Fleece Pub, in Bungay, Ipswich Crown Court heard yesterday.

'They knew each other from school and from living in the same small community,' said Robert Sadd, prosecuting.

He said that on the evening in question, in July last year, the two women had been standing reasonably close to each other when something was said between them which caused a 'degree of disquiet'.
