Battered young mum told attacker will not be charged

A YOUNG mother who fell victim to a frenzied attack spoke of her anguish yesterday after prosecutors told her nobody will stand trial for the assault which tore her life apart.

Rain Shirley was punched to the ground then repeatedly kicked in the head when violence erupted in a Newquay hotel in the early hours.

Yet no criminal prosecution will be brought against the brute who left her with physical and emotional scars, after the Crown Prosecution Service decided it did not have sufficient evidence.

Yesterday, Rain, 23, told of the effects of her ordeal and her frustration at a criminal justice system that she claims is "built against the victim".
