An operating theatre assistant at the James Paget University Hospital who pulled a woman's hair out and punched her several times was ordered to carry out 150 hours unpaid work yesterday.

Samantha Conner was sentenced to the community punishment after she had earlier pleaded guilty to attacking Charlotte Lane outside Yarmouth's Kings wine bar on July 5.

Yarmouth magistrates heard a drunken Conner, 20, of Durham Avenue, Gorleston, carried out the assault following an altercation in the wine bar.

Conner's solicitor Ross Burrows said that his client, who had no previous convictions, had been egged by two other girls in the bar she had only just met and that she normally never drank.

Mr Burrows said Conner deeply regretted her actions, never wanted to appear before a court again and was hoping for a promotion at the Gorleston hospital.

As well as the 150 hours unpaid work, Conner was ordered to pay �100 compensation to her victim and pay �100 in court costs.
