Sick mum abused six kids with screwdriver and kitchen utensils

A sadistic mother-of-eight has been found guilty of subjecting six of her children to a "sickening" six-year campaign of abuse and neglect.

The mum beat her children, all aged under 16, with objects including a belt, a broken coat hanger and a meat tenderising mallet, a court heard.

The 37-year-old was found guilty of 18 charges of horrific abuse including scratching one of her daughters with a knife and burning another with a hot screwdriver.

Cambridgeshire County Council admitted monitoring the family since 1999 yet charges were only brought after two children discussed the abuse with a teacher.

The mum, a Jamaican national living in Cambridge, was found guilty of nine counts of assaulting a child under 16 in a manner likely to cause unnecessary suffering with injury to the child's health. She was also convicted of one count of affray and two counts of witness intimidation.

Her reign of terror against her children, aged between four and 16, lasted from January 1, 2002, to July 1, 2008, Cambridge Crown Court was told during a five-week trial.
