A MUM has appeared in court accused of assaulting two Droitwich schoolboys over 'bullying' claims.

Rebecca Barlow of St Andrew's Close, Droitwich denied two charges of common assault, one against each boy, when she appeared before magistrates in Worcester on Thursday.

The 38-year-old is alleged to have committed both offences in Droitwich on July 5 this year. The court has made a press direction which prohibits either child from being identified.

The case was listed for a two day trial, beginning on Friday, February 4 next year and scheduled to finish on Monday, February 7 next year.

In the meantime Barlow was granted unconditional bail.
