Soldier who 'glassed' Scots army pal in neck in Magaluf released from Spanish jail and allowed to return home

April 17, 2019

A SOLDIER suspected of glassing her Scots army pal in the neck in a Magaluf nightclub has been told she can return to the UK while the probe continues.

Sydney Cole, 19, was given the good news this afternoon at Palma prison where she has been held for the past two days.


She was scheduled to be allowed to leave around 9pm tonight once paperwork has been completed.

She has not been banned from travelling and is expected to head home once she can sort out a return flight.

No conditions have been placed on her release and she has not had to post bail, but she is believed to have been told she must make herself available to the judge in the future as and when required.

Her defence lawyer Miguel Angel Ordinas is understood to have made an application to the judge to have her released after fellow soldier Sarah Garrity, 22, told court officials she did not want to press charges.

It was not clear this evening if she would be allowed to return to work at the barracks in Scotland where she is based.

Sarah, who suffered a horrific injury to her throat after being cut by glass, is still at Son Espases Hospital in the Majorcan capital Palma.

Sarah, from Irvine, Ayrshire but now living in Middlesborough, is in the Royal Logistics Corps.

She reportedly needed 14 stitches to close a cut on her neck caused by the glass.

She was on holiday with Londoner Cole, who is believed to be in the Adjutant General Corps, and another woman called Deborah Ferguson who is also thought to be a soldier.

Cole has insisted she did not throw a glass directly at Sarah during a fight and her friend was hurt after it broke on the floor, but two witnesses have told police she did aim the glass at her pal.

We told earlier how Sarah believes she owes her life to a hero rugby player who raced to stop the blood gushing from her wounded neck.
