A female student was punched in the face at Notting Hill Carnival and spent nine hours in A&E after she told a man not to grope her.

Mary Brandon, a student at Leeds University, was enjoying the west London spectacle on Bank Holiday Monday when she felt a man grab her bottom.

Despite telling him not to, the man groped her again, so she pushed him away. She was then punched in the face and left with a swollen, bloody black eye.
