A teenager who brawled with two women inside and outside of a Norwich club has been ordered to pay £50 to each of her victims - but has escaped a criminal conviction.
On November 2, 18-year-old Timira Risby was involved in an altercation with two other women in Qube nightclub on Prince of Wales Road.
She appeared at Norwich Magistrates' Court on Tuesday to answer two charges of assault, relating to one incident in the club and one outside.
