A bar worker who was bottled in a 'revenge' attack carried out by three sisters has revealed a photograph of her horrific facial injuries.
The photograph of Kylie Yorke shows her laying in a hospital bed with bloody scars across her face after she was brutally assaulted while celebrating her 30th birthday.
A court has heard sisters Kylie Peck, 26, Kirsty Peck, 31, and Danielle Peck, 33, launched the attack on Miss Yorke outside a pub because they were denied entry.
Victim Kirsty Yorke, pictured, suffered serious injuries as a result of the unprovoked attack
Sisters Kirsty, Danielle and Kylie Peck, pictured outside Southampton Crown Court, were all involved in the attack on Ms Yorke
On October 21 last year Danielle 'violently' forced Miss Yorke to the floor outside the pub in Southampton, Hampshire, before Kirsty grabbed the birthday girl's hair.
Kylie Yorke, pictured, said she gave up her job at the bar because she was embarrassed by the scars on her face caused by the attack
Kylie then used a wine bottle to deliver a 'devastating blow' to Miss Yorke's face, leaving her with a deep cut across the bridge of her nose which is now a permanent scar.
The horrific injuries can be seen in the photograph released by Miss Yorke today - as her attacker Kylie was released from prison after she successfully appealed her sentence.
Top judges at London's Court of Appeal agreed to suspend Kylie's 18 month prison sentence which had been imposed at Southampton Crown Court in September.
Judges said Kylie, who was convicted of wounding with intent after a trial, should not have gone to jail, citing the fact she is now six months pregnant. Her sister, Kirsty, is also now pregnant.
Releasing Kylie from jail yesterday, Mr Justice Goose also said she does not pose a 'risk or danger' to the public and said she has a 'realistic' prospect of rehabilitation.
In September Southampton Crown Court heard the sisters, all from the city, attacked Miss Yorke after Kirsty and her partner Stuart House attempted to get in to the party but were denied access.
The incident happened outside the Ice House in Southampton. Ms Yorke, in a victim impact statement to court said she has since stopped working at the pub as she is embarrassed by teh scars on her face
Having left, the pair returned to the pub, this time with Danielle, Kylie and her partner Charlie Attrill in tow.
Prosecutor Tim Moores said the group's motive for the attack was 'most likely revenge'.
Mr Moores told the court Danielle 'ran' at Miss Yorke, pulling her to the ground by her hair, before Kirsty grabbed a handful of hair and tried to pull the victim off her sister.
CCTV footage then captured Kylie, who was carrying a mug and a wine bottle, 'pushed' the latter into Miss Yorke's face, causing the injuries.
Reading from a victim statement, Mr Moores said Miss Yorke, from Southampton, was 'embarrassed' by the scar and had since stopped working at The Ice House pub.
Judge Peter Henry described the wine bottle blow as 'devastating' and said the incident was motivated by 'revenge'.
Danielle, who admitted affray, was given a nine month prison sentence suspended for two years and a six month curfew order and Kirsty, who also admitted affray, was given an 18 month community order, including 120 hours unpaid work.
Earlier this year, Attrill, of Southampton, was given a 12 month prison sentence suspended for 18 months after admitting affray, possession of a knife and possession of cocaine all relating to the same incident.
House, of Southampton, who admitted affray, possession of a knife and possession of a weapon, received the same punishment as Attrill.
Following the September hearing, the sisters' father, Howard Peck, 71, defended his daughters, describing them as 'timid'.
Kylie Peck was handed an 18-month jail sentence in September by Southampton Crown Court. The jail term was suspended yesterday by London's Court of Appeal
Her sister Danielle, who admitted affray, had been given a nine month jail term suspended for two years while Kirsty received an 18-month community order including 120 hours of unpaid work
