Prosecuting, Tina Cunnane, said: “The complainant was her ex partner at the time. He contacted police to say the defendant had sent texts that she has cut his clothing and left them in a bag for him to collect.

“She was six months pregnant. She sent him a Whatsapp message saying she had cut up his favourite football shirt in a bag, saying ‘oops, I’ve had great pleasure cutting up your Chester top’. A pool cue was also damaged.”
