A man was seen by police walking along a street with his wife who he was meant to have no contact with.

Stephen Watkinson, 42, of Clevedon Road, North Shore, admitted failing to comply with a bail condition.

Blackpool magistrates agreed to rebail him.

Pam Smith, prosecuting, said Watkinson had been bailed on the condition he did not contact his wife.

Patrick Nelligan, defending, said problems had arisen because both of them had flats in the same block.

Watkinson heard his doorbell ringing and did not realise it was his wife. He had to get to the police station and his wife walked with him.
