A jury in the trial of a woman accused of stabbing a grandmother to death in a busy street is considering its verdict.

The Old Bailey heard Kerry Clark, then 22, managed to fight Nicola Edgington off but Sally Hodkin, 58, died when her neck was cut.

Ms Edgington, 32 from Greenwich, south-east London, admits carrying out the attacks in Bexleyheath in 2011, but denies murder and attempted murder.

The court heard she killed her mother in 2005 in Forest Row, East Sussex.

Ms Edgington's plea of manslaughter due to diminished responsibility was accepted by the prosecution on that occasion.
