Aimee, then 18, was lured by ex Simone McDermott into meeting her at her home but was ambushed by the thug and her three pals.
The teen begged “let me go, please let me go” as she was kicked and punched repeatedly while the animals threatened to “break” her face.
McDermott and her friends Melissa Marriott, Siobhan Wait and Victoria Houghton escaped jail after admitting assault with intent to rob.
The inquest made no mention of the attack but was told Aimee had been suffering from severe mental difficulties and had attempted to take her own life. She previously spoke of the effect the assault had on her – including how she believed the girls would kill her.
Aimee said at the time: ”I’ve started getting shopping delivered to my house and I feel unsure going to the shops as I might bump into Simone McDermott and her friends. I didn’t think they were sorry for what they did.
”I couldn’t work or do anything and I didn’t feel safe or have the confidence to. The assault made me feel paranoid in relationships. When friends arrange to meet me I think I’m going to get hurt and ‘I am on medication in relation to my anxiety.
”The feeling of being attacked by someone I cared about and who I thought cared about me had left me feeling really betrayed. I was so distressed I couldn’t sleep. I am frustrated to be made to feel a victim by this girl. I don’t want to feel weak and have these feeling hanging over me
The hearing was told Aimee had been on a night out in Manchester with pals when she returned to her hotel room alone at around 5.15am.
