A GREENOCK woman has been charged with attacking another female whom prosecutors say was acting in the course of her employment in the town.

Lynda Allan, 44, of Westmorland Road, punched the woman on her head and repeatedly pushed her on the body, it is alleged.

The Crown says Allan carried out the alleged assault while the woman was attending at her neighbour's home on February 20.

She has pleaded not guilty through lawyer Gerry Keenan at the sheriff Court, with the case due to call again next February.
