Aftermath of Notting Hill Carnival, Woman Shares Pix Of Swollen Face
Posting the picture on her Facebook page, Mary explained that the attack happened after she asked a man to stop groping her: ‘A man in the crowd grabbed my arse. When I told him not to he did it again. I pushed him away, exercising my right to tell a man to stop touching my body without my permission, so he took a swing at me and punched me in the face.’
Mary then spent the next nine hours in A&E being treated for her injuries.
But despite this sickening attack, she has vowed to remain defiant: ‘Maybe it’d be safer to just ignore it when someone invades your space and body. But I can honestly say I will always stand up to someone who thinks they can get away with this behaviour and I’d take a punch again from this looser or any other looser [sic] who thinks it’s OK to treat women like this.’
