A GRAN told how she feared for her life when she was battered by yobs at a beauty spot.

Melanie Cuthbertson was enjoying the sunshine at Rotten Calder Waterfall in Blantyre on Monday when she was set upon by the thugs.

The 52-year-old was relaxing with pals from a wild swimming group and decided to stay on after they had left.

She told of the terrifying moment the group – a boy and nine girls – pounced on her and started stamping on her head.

The gran had fallen asleep in a pop-up tent before the horror incident unfolded.

Melanie, from Hamilton, told the Daily Record: “I had pitched a little pop-up tent by the water and was lying on it relaxing when I suddenly opened my eyes and noticed some of this gang had congregated around me.
