A WOMAN was remanded in custody by Worcester magistrates today charged with helping someone attempt suicide.

Kate Wiggett was rushed to hospital with serious injuries on Wednesday evening after falling from the A449 Worcester Road bridge over the railway line near Malvern Link railway station.

Victoria Dickinson is charged under the Suicide Act 1961 with intentionally committing an act assisting the attempted suicide of another, namely pushing Miss Wiggett from the bridge.

Dickinson, aged 28, of Marlborough Gardens, Malvern Link, is seven months pregnant and has five children.

An application for bail made by Dickinson's solicitor Barry Newton was refused.

Dickinson was remanded in custody until February 18 next year, although the next hearing could be heard earlier for procedural reasons.

The court heard that Miss Wiggett is currently in an induced coma at Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham, with a fractured skull, bleeding on the brain, and multiple fractures of the spine and pelvis.
