Minnie-Mo Hunt, 25, and her niece Daisy Hunt, 23, were captured on video attacking Rebecca Grant on Southsea Common after she asked them to return a laughing gas cracker.

The incident, viewed more than a million times online, took place near the Queen’s Hotel on June 17 after the Hunts joined the victim’s group uninvited before events spiralled out of control.

The relatives were sentenced by recorder Gordon Bebb QC at Portsmouth Crown Court on February 1 with Daisy Hunt, of Berkshire Close, Landport, jailed for three years after pleading guilty to attempting grievous bodily harm (GBH).

Minnie-Mo Hunt, previously of High Street, Cosham, but who now lives in Kiln Lane, Epsom, Surrey, admitted causing actual bodily harm and was found not guilty at trial of attempting GBH after being the catalyst for the scrap.

She was handed an 18-month jail term suspended for two years with 20 days’ rehabilitation activities.

Now a request has been put forward for the sentences to be appealed by an unknown source for being too lenient.

A spokesman for the Attorney General’s Office said: ‘We have received a request for the sentences of Daisy Hunt and Minnie-Mo Hunt to be considered under the Unduly Lenient Sentence (ULS) scheme.

‘The Law Officers have 28 days from sentencing to consider the case and make a decision.’

Recorder Bebb told the duo at sentencing: ‘Both of you were really acting as a pair of bullies.

‘You were intimidating and you thought that the group would be too frightened to do anything about it and that was partly true.

‘But the only person who wasn’t, was Rebecca Grant.

‘I’m prepared to accept that she went to try to get that item, the cracker, back, and I have no doubt that her trying to do that acted as a trigger for both of you to teach her a lesson.

‘Between the two of you, you got her to the ground and when on the ground, you Daisy Hunt, stamped on her head twice and you Minnie-Mo Hunt, deliberately kicked her in the face.

‘As a result of the stamping Rebecca Grant was knocked unconscious, and had to be taken to hospital.’
