A GIRL accused of a 'Clockwork Orange' killing of a man in Trafalgar Square kicked her victim's head so hard she stained her shoes with blood, a court heard.

Ruby Thomas (pictured) and Rachel Burke, both 18, stamped on Ian Baynham, 62, and repeatedly kicked him after friend Joel Alexander, 19, punched him to the ground, the Old Bailey heard on Tuesday.

He died of multiple skull fractures on September 25 last year.

The drunken girls allegedly goaded Mr Baynham, from Beckenham, after seeing him holding hands with his friend Philip Brown. When police searched Thomas' Litchfield home, they found her shoes on a wall in the garden with Mr Baynham's blood on them. Witnesses said both girls stamped on Mr Baynham "with great gusto," said Brian Altman QC, prosecuting.

He earlier told the court the violence was likened to the film A Clockwork Orange.

Jamie Devlin, who had been with the group, said Mr Baynham shouted at Thomas: "No, I don't want to sleep with you love."

Mr Devlin said he turned away before seeing Thomas kicking Mr Baynham in the leg and in the genitals. Mr Baynham then slapped her face.

Thomas, Alexander, of Talbot Road, Thornton Heath and Burke, of Maxfield Lane, Three Oaks, East Sussex, all deny manslaughter and violent disorder.

The trial continues.
