A row between two female pensioners at a bingo hall in Sutton, south London, ended in a punch up at the weekend.
An 80-year-old woman was queuing for her lunch at Riva Bingo on Sunday when she was urged to hurry up by the 72-year-old woman behind her. According to police, the younger protagonist called her octogenarian elder a "stupid old woman".
The older assailant reacted angrily to the impudence, and returned with a "mouthful of abuse" according to police. Not content with her retort, the 80-year-old punched the younger one in the face - with the younger woman suffering minor bruising.
Officers from Sutton Town Centre team cautioned the 80-year-old for assault but have decided to take no further action.
