THE father of three Southampton sisters in court over a pub brawl last night leapt to the defence of his daughters.

Howard Peck said all three of his daughters had been brought up well and were “all good mothers”.

He also raised concern for his youngest daughter, Kylie, who was jailed for her part in the incident.

Mr Peck’s comments after daughters Kirsty, Kylie and Danielle appeared at Southampton Crown Court following a brawl at The Ice House in Shirley Warren.

Kirsty Peck, 31, of Chestnut Road, who pleaded guilty to affray, was given an 18 month community order, including 120 hours unpaid work.

Danielle Peck, 33, of Coxford Road, who pleaded guilty to affray, was given a nine month sentence, suspended for two years, as well as a six month curfew order.

Kylie Peck, 26, of Colby Street, who was found guilty of wounding without intent, was jailed for 18 months.

Following the hearing, Mr Peck, 73, said: “The girls are timid. This is out of character for them.

“They are all good mothers.

“The case has been really hard for the family. I dropped the girls off at court and I only picked two up, that really hit me.”

Speaking about Kylie, he added: “She’s pregnant and been sent to Bronzefield prison. I’m worried about her.”

As previously reported, the court heard victim Kylie York was celebrating her 30th birthday at the pub, which was closed to the public, when Kirsty and her partner Stuart House attempted to enter.

Prosecutor Tim Moores said a scuffle broke out in which both Peck and House claimed they were assaulted.

Mr Moores said the pair left, but returned soon after with the two sisters and Attrill – the partner of Kylie Peck.

The court heard that during the incident, Danielle and Kirsty both pulled Ms York’s hair, while Kylie “pushed” a bottle into Ms York’s face, causing a scar on the bridge of her nose.

House, of Old Redbridge Road, Southampton, and Attrill, of Lockerley Crescent, Southampton, were given suspended sentences in February, after pleading guilty to affray.
