A self-styled "real-life Barbie" who attacked NHS nurses during a hospital rage over visiting hours in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic has been spared jail.

Kerry Miles, 37, hurled a laptop and desktop monitor at one NHS worker before punching another in the chest on an old people's ward.

The mum-of-one has previously hit headlines for spending £300,000 on plastic surgery to transform herself into a "satanic Barbie" and saving £20k for her young daughter to have breast implants.

Today, Miles was handed a suspended 16-week jail sentence at Chelmsford Magistrates' Court after she was found guilty of assaulting emergency workers.

On August 26, 2020, Miles flew into a rage while visiting Broomfield Hospital in Chelmsford, Essex, where her grandmother was a patient.

When staff advised her to arrange another visiting time due to Covid restrictions, Miles lobbed a laptop and folders at one nurse, injuring her shoulder.

Miles then punched another nurse in the chest before driving her car carelessly towards a security guard who tried to photograph Miles' number plate before she left the hospital.

Prosecuting, Jacqueline Dankyi told the court that one of the victims had considered quitting her job at the hospital due to the attack.

Miles was found guilty last month of three counts of assaulting an emergency worker, as well as criminal damage and careless driving.

Today, she was sentenced to 16 weeks in prison, suspended for one year.

Justices also handed Miles a one-year restraining order banning her from returning to the ward at Broomfield Hospital and contacting her victims.

Miles, of Witham, Essex was also ordered to pay £1,370, which included £620 court costs, £250 in criminal damage compensation for Broomfield Hospital, and £500 in victim surcharge.

Bench chair Margaret Macallan said: "This was an assault where weapons were used around vulnerable people.

"It was in the middle of a global pandemic when visiting hours were restricted nationally."

Mitigating, Luke Jaques said that Miles had recently been diagnosed with autism and that she suspected that she had ADHD.

He added: "She accepts that she didn't manage her emotions in the correct way."
