Wrightson Cocktail

Two teenage girls aged just 13 and 14 launched a savage attack on Angela Wrightson, which resulted in her death. The girls had beaten her with a shovel, a TV-set, a coffee table, a printer, a kettle, a metal pan, a ceramic vase and glass ornament. They posted photographs on Snapchat during the assault, and were heard saying: “Go on. Smash her head in. Bray her. Fucking kill her.”
