Benefits cheat bride who scarred woman for life with her stiletto heels in ... trends now
A benefits cheat bride who left a woman permanently scarred in a nightclub brawl after hitting her three times with stiletto heels has avoided jail.
Emma Blackmore, 43, launched the attack at the Out nightclub in Pembroke, Wales.
A court heard she smashed the stiletto into the victim's face and head three times, avoiding her eye by just an inch.
The nightclub attack came six years after Blackmore avoided a prison sentence for swindling £30,000 by pretending she was a jilted bride.
She posed as a dumped woman to fiddle benefits after claiming her new husband Wayne had walked out on her after the honeymoon. She received a 12-month sentence suspended for 18 months for the benefits scam in 2017.
Blackmore has now been handed an 18-month sentence suspended for two years for the stiletto attack in January this year.

Prosecutor Brian Simpson said Blackmore's sister became involved in an altercation in the club and the victim was trying to separate the parties.
Mr Simpson said Blackmore grabbed the Good Samaritan by the hair and then hit her three times with the high heel shoe.
She was thrown out of the club after and security staff rushed over to break up the brawl, leaving one female bouncer with a cut.
Swansea Crown Court heard Blackmore was identified by staff using CCTV and police officers went to her house just hours later.
