A WOMAN has been fined £400 for attacking two women on a bus from Prestwick to Ayr.

Amanda Allison, of James Brown Avenue, Ayr admitted carrying out the assaults on two separate occasions last year.

Allison punched one of her victims on the head on November 8 when she was travelling between Prestwick Toll and Ayr.

On November 22, between the two towns she punched a passenger on the face while she was sleeping before repeatedly slapping her on the face causing injury.

The 53-year-old appeared before Sheriff Carole Cunninghame last week at Ayr Sheriff Court.

She will pay £200 compensation to each victim with £70 to be paid on or before August 8. She will then pay £30 per fortnight.
