Mum-to-be beat cyclist.

A PREGNANT mum who beat up an elderly cyclist has been jailed.

Gloria Brown, 35, from Fenton, Staffordshire, set upon 60-year-old John Turley with a group of young thugs, leaving the pensioner with a fractured eye socket.

The attack was sparked when the mum-of-three kicked a ball across a busy road, hitting Mr Turley's bike.

As he stopped to complain, he was set upon by a gang of youths. Brown punched him once. A witness went to intervene and was also assaulted. She was jailed for 16 months after admitting grievous bodily harm.
