A HUSBAND launched an attack on the man he believed had been rude to his wife at a supermarket cake stall.

The victim was shopping in the Morrisons store on Squires Gate Lane, Blackpool, and chatting to his wife on the phone about whether to buy a cake.

Blackpool Magistrates’ Court heard how John Trundle’s wife had tried to get past the victim, who turned and said: “All you have to do is say excuse me.”

Trundle, 55, took offence and swore at the victim and told him to get out of the way.

Tracy Yates, prosecuting, described to the court how a fight then broke out between the two men and said: “Trundle began to punch the man to the head – his victim had a phone in one hand and a cake in the other.”

“The victim went to the floor and he was kicked by his attacker,”

The attack was witnessed by supermarket staff, who saw Trundle leave the store and get into his car.

Trundle, of Fairlie, Skelmersdale, was later arrested and admitted assault in court.

Magistrates adjourned the case so that they can hear from witnesses about the severity of the attack.

Trundle was bailed.
