A refuse collector grabbed his girlfriend and bit her face, a court heard.

Kyle Wilkinson, 21, of Talbot Road, Blackpool, admitted two offences of assault.

Philip Potter, prosecuting, said the couple were walking through the Grange Park estate on March 6 when Wilkinson ran off because he thought he saw someone he did not like.

When he returned to his girlfriend there was a row and he grabbed her and bit her face.

Suzanne Mugford, defending, said the couple had lost a baby. His girlfriend had sent a letter to the court asking magistrates not to jail him.

Wilkinson was given 12 months supervision by Blackpool magistrates.
