A care worker has been struck off for biting into a police officer and slapping and headbutting another at an illegal lockdown house party.
Nerys Williams, 32, of Gwynedd, North Wales, was at a house party with 30 people at her father’s home when it was raided by officers.
Police officers tried to disperse the party goers but Williams flew into a rage and attacked them.
A fitness to practise hearing was told she had been working as a support worker for company Cartrefi Cymru.

But she had been ‘out of control’ at the party when she bit officer Jamie Aston and left him needing hospital treatment.
The hearing was told she also slapped and headbutted one officer and later kicked another at the gathering in June last year.
Presenting officer Delme Griffiths said: ‘It was extremely serious violence against serving officers’.
Williams was arrested and blamed alcohol for her behaviour in police interview.

She was jailed for one year at Llandudno Magistrates and sacked by her employer
A Social Care Wales panel has now found her actions amounted to unacceptable professional conduct.
The hearing was told the situation was aggravated because she should not have attended the party during a lockdown.
Panel chair Islwyn Jones said there was no evidence she had made any effort to change her lifestyle.

He said: ‘We can have no confidence that it will not happen again and what lessons, if any, have been learned.
‘Her behaviour calls into question her suitability to work in the caring profession.’
He added Williams had shown ‘a blatant disregard for professional standards..’
She has now been struck off the register.
