A retired nurse stabbed her daughter multiple times after telling her "I don't love you as much as I used to".

Irene Forrester told daughter Linda Ann she was "putting her out of her misery" before stabbing her four times in a terrifying knife attack at her flat in Partick.

The 66-year-old confessed to police after dialling 999 moments after the incident in January this year.

She told call handlers: "I stabbed my daughter. I hope she is not dead. I'm very sorry."

"She will be dead. I am guilty. It is so bad."

Prosecutors told Sheriff Alan MacKenzie the pair had been at Forrester's home when she suddenly blurted out that she no longer had the same love for her daughter.

Linda Ann, 38, went to bed after telling her mother she did not want to speak to her.

However, Forrester burst into the bedroom with a kitchen knife and inflicted multiple injuries.

Linda Ann managed to escape before calling an ambulance after suffering a collapsed lung, broken rib and stab wounds to her back, neck and arms.

Forrester later told officers: "I did it. I did not want to do it, but sometimes enough is enough."

Her lawyer, Neil Stewart, told the court: "She believes this is an extremely serious matter."

"She acted disproportionately, but was at the end of her tether with her daughter."

No further explanation for the incident was given in court.

Sheriff Alan MacKenzie moved to continue Forrester's bail, however told her: "Custody is at the forefront of my thinking due to the gravity of the offence."

Forrester pled guilty to assaulting her daughter to her severe injury and danger of life.

She will be sentenced at Glasgow Sheriff Court next month.
