A 24-year-old woman who tried to bite, spit at and jab a paramedic with a pen at a hospital has been jailed.

Kirsty Eales, of Hendon Gardens, Romford, pleaded guilty to assaulting by beating at Queen’s Hospital in Romford.

The incident, where she also swore at the health worker, occurred at the Rom Valley Way hospital on October 23 last year

She also pleaded guilty to being drunk and disorderly in South Street, Romford, on the same day.

Eales was sentenced to 12 weeks in prison at Barkingside Magistrates’ Court on February 19.

Her conviction meant she breached a suspended sentence over a previous crime, which was imposed at the same court on April 25 last year.

After the hearing, Michael Pearce operations manager at the London Ambulance Service based in Whipps Cross, said: “We’re pleased with the outcome of the court case and the message it sends out that assaults on our staff can never be justified and will not be tolerated.”
