Amanda climbs onto the table and starts dancing wildly. She accidently kicks a glass which smashes on the floor. Colin steps on the broken glass which cuts the sole of his foot badly, it requires stitches to stop the heavy bleeding.

Advise Amanda on her criminal liability.

Any help anyone could give me on what the most appropriate criminal offence that Amanda is liable for would be amazing.

GBH Section 20 because of the injury inflicted (needed stitches) BUT i don't think she maliciously intended to cause harm which is the requirement for Section 18...

Little rusty, been few years since my Law A level but off to do Law in September

First of, start looking at the facts of the case. Then consider the law, do the facts satisfy the requirements stated in section 47, or are they more applicable to section 20. Was there a necessary intention to satisfy section 18, yes/no, why?
This is highly based on your own judgement.

Amanda would be liable for assault as she is in a public place dancing wildly on a table, she is causing people to apprehend fear and alarm.
She will also be liable for S 20 GBH.
Look at mark schemes online, I think i've seen this question before on the AQA website.
