Lesbians Who Terrorised Foster Girls Given Glowing Report by Social Workers

London Mirror | March 11 2004

A LESBIAN couple who terrorised two foster girls in their care were given glowing reports by social workers.

Lesley Broughton, 31, and Lynne Sheridan, 30, were were said to offer an "excellent placement".

But secretly they put the two sisters, aged 11 and nine, through two years of hell, a jury heard.

They punched and slapped them, made them drink washing up liquid, stand in silence for hours and sit with their noses pressed against a wall.

Neighbours at Little Holton, near Bolton, called police after seeing the girls frogmarched around the garden.

An investigation was under way yesterday after Broughton and Sheridan admitted cruelty and administering a noxious substance.

At Minshull Street crown court they were given community service orders and banned from working with children.
