Countryside warden Jane Downall, 61, used the anti-bacterial spray from Aldi to clean the wooden fence after Samantha Fisher and her daughter Ebony leaned over to talk to another neighbour three doors down. As Downall unleashed the spray, droplets of the liquid hit the faces of Mrs Fisher and Ebony and both had to seek medical treatment in hospital for suspected burns. But as the 61-year-old unleashed the spray, droplets of the potentially corrosive liquid inadvertently hit the faces of Mrs Fisher and Ebony who both had sought medical treatment in hospital for suspected burns. Police had arrived at the property in Heywood, Greater Manchester to find the victims suffering redness to their faces, and later arrested Downall. He hopes it will one day go on display at the ground. Downall, who worked at Daisy Nook country park, near Oldham, was convicted of common assault at Tameside Magistrates' Court. Both did not suffer lasting injuries. The court heard Downall had been living next door to the Fishers since 2013, with both parties making repeated complaints about one another. The concerns were also expressed by Professor Peter Openshaw, a fellow government scientific adviser, who said he was"very fearful" of another"lockdown Christmas".

The incident occurred on April 5 2020, just a fortnight after the Government imposed lockdown restrictions. At Tameside magistrates court Downall - who was a contestant on the Nick Knowles BBC wildlife show Wildest Dreams - was convicted of common assault. "Back then, I had far less bricks at my disposal so I often ended up with a technicolour Trent End. Downall said: “I was frightened of Covid and conscious of the two metre rule… I was very conscious that the virus could have been airborne, because at the time, no one was sure how you caught Covid. I didn't want to catch anything. The court heard Downall who worked at Daisy Nook country park near Oldham had been living next door to the Fishers since 2013. I was very cautious. After hours spent researching the stadium on Google Maps and scouring the internet for specialist pieces, three months later the model was complete. "They had been making jokes about the pandemic and there had been exaggerating coughing. The incident happened on April 5 last year just two weeks after the Government imposed lockdown restrictions. The UK is currently 'dilly-dallying into lockdown' a government adviser has warned.

I was just conscious about the germs.” Judge Angela Nield said: "We do not find the appellant made a deliberate action to harm the complainants but her actions were reckless. "My wife was speaking to another neighbour who had had messaged her earlier and was speaking to her three doors down over the fence. He now hopes it could be displayed at the ground. “Given the history of antagonism, it made her reckless in her actions resulting in the assault. But it was a momentary event and we regard events on the day in question as being specific to her heightened agitation of the pandemic and the situation she perceived herself to be in. "She started saying 'get away from my fence, get away from my fence' then walks towards me and came quite close and then sprayed the liquid.” . The vaccine confers a huge advantage and everyone should get vaccinated but on its own, it's not quite enough, we need other protections.
