A woman has appeared in court accused of launching a hate-fuelled attack on a disabled woman.
Gemma McHugh will stand trial next month for assaulting Ashleigh Bell in Ladybank, Fife, in an incident that prosecutors say was "aggravated by prejudice relating to disability".
She is alleged to have punched Ms Bell repeatedly on the head, causing her to fall to the ground, before kicking her in the head and pulling her hair.
McHugh, 23, of Orchardgate, Cupar, denies the charge of assault to injury.
Sheriff Charles Macnair QC ordered her to stand trial on September 17 at Cupar Sheriff Court.
The incident is alleged to have happened at the Royal Buildings in Ladybank.
