Lesbian couple's savage assault leaves male neigbour who made pass at them for dead
A lesbian couple have been jailed after savagely beating up a male neigbour who made a pass at one of them.
Sara Bradbury and her girlfriend Brianna Lewin launched a joint attack on neighbour Christopher Steadman, flooring him before kicking him unconscious.
Mr Steadman suffered a fractured cheekbone and jaw and a brain haemorrhage as well as facial bruising and swelling.

Southampton Crown Court heard he, and two other men, had been drinking with Bradbury, 30, and Lewin, 28, in their flat.
While Lewin was taking one man home, Mr Steadman attempted to make a sexual advance on Bradbury but he was rebuffed.
She then texted Lewin and, on her return to the flat, in Southampton, Hants, they launched their attack on Steadman.
The court heard how Lewin made a 999 call for an ambulance after she realised the extent of their victim's injuries.
Bradbury admitted causing grievous bodily harm with intent and was jailed for 30 months.
Judge Gary Burrell QC paid tribute to her four-year Army service in which she had served in Bosnia and Kosova, describing it as 'exemplary.' Apart from a drink driving conviction, she was of previous good character.
Lewin, who has 11 previous convictions for 18 offences, was convicted after denying the same allegation. She was jailed for a total of four years and four months.
Speaking about Steadman, Judge Burrell said: 'He was vulnerable because he was unable to defend himself.
'You could have easily killed him or caused him a permanent brain injury.' Bradbury and Lewin are no longer together.
The court heard Mr Steadman, 45, had also complained to Bradbury earlier in the evening about the level of noise coming from their flat.
Speaking after the trial DC Rory Kemper said: 'Bradbury and Lewin said he had made a sexual pass at Bradbury, which had been upsetting.
'Mr Steadman said the women had become angry because of a noise issue.'
