A man assaulted two people just three weeks after being released from prison.

Simon Colraine assaulted a woman in Blackpool because she had sold him some bad heroin, a court was told.

Colraine, 33, of Bedford Road, North Shore, admitted assaulting a man and a woman when he appeared before Blackpool Magistrates.

Tracy Yates, prosecuting, said that the victims were leaving Walter Robinson Court, in Laycock Gate, when they were confronted by Colraine.
