Karen Matthews has been attacked after causing a mother to become angry within a fish and chip shop due to her involvement in the fake abduction of her own daughter Shannon Matthews.

The mum of seven was attacked with ‘piping hot’ pot of mushy peas as she left a local takeaway. Luckily it was only a small pot of peas, things could have much much worse.

It is believed that Matthews was confronted and told “You evil bitch, I’m a mother too” she then had the piping hot food poured over her head.

Matthews was living a peaceful life until the BBC broadcast the drama The Moorside which tells of how she was involved in the fake kidnap of her own daughter back in 2008, Matthews despite serving time still pleads her innocence.
