Former pupil at school run by nuns was ‘hit with carpet beater’


A former pupil at an approved school told a court a nun hit her repeatedly with a carpet beater.

Kathleen Humphries claimed that she had been battered by Anne Kenny, 79, known as Mother Rosaria, while at the facility in Renfrewshire.

Kenny and Agnes Reville, 77, known as Mother Martin, deny assaulting eight girls at Dalbeth Approved School in Bishopton in the 1970s.

On Monday, the jury at Paisley Sheriff Court heard from 56-year-old Ms Humphries.
