A couple who had been accepted for IVF treatment rowed and the man was arrested, a court heard.

Bruce McLeod, of Newton Drive, Blackpool, admitted assault and insulting behaviour when he appeared before the town’s magistrates’ court.

McLeod, 35, had the cases against him adjourned for a week so that pre sentence reports can be prepared on him.

Pam Smith, prosecuting, said that McLeod and his partner Fiona Mills had been out together but when they returned home McLeod became aggressive and started to call his partner names using the words “freak, fat and ugly.”

She became upset because of the fact they were awaiting the IVF treatement so she could become pregnant.

She slapped McLeod and then he assaulted her by grabbing her hair.

Police were called and he was arrested.

A Chinese police officer was involved and McLeod insulted her, the court was told.

In interview with the police McLeod apologised for what he had said.
