A man accused of stamping on his disabled girlfriend’s head and breaking some of her ribs and a finger has made his first appearance at court.

Adam Spencer-Hughes, 44, of Havelock Street, central Blackpool, pleaded not guilty to assault.

The offence is alleged to have taken place at the complainant’s flat in Winnipeg Place, Bispham, on September 27 this year.

The prosecution opposed an application for bail for Spencer-Hughes made by defence lawyer Scott Parker when he appeared at Blackpool Magistrates Court.

Spencer-Hughes was bailed by magistrates until November 23 where his case will go to trial.

As part of the conditions of his bail Spencer-Hughes must live and sleep at his given address in Havelock Street, and not contact the complainant or enter Bispham.

He will reappear at Blackpool Magistrates Court.
