While the assault was under way the voices of Kerr, Roper and Olsen could be heard encouraging Sims. The victim is heard apologising, crying, and saying she did not want to fight.
“While all this was happening these three laughed,” Manning said.
Throughout all this the woman was unlawfully detained, and was not allowed to leave. The more serious offending occurred after the filming had stopped.
Manning said the two women were most responsible for the physical offending, “but standing by and cheering them on and encouraging them and inciting them were the two men”.
