A CONSTRUCTION worker who attacked his girlfriend has been warned by a judge he may be jailed.

Terrance Baker, 29, of Maltkiln House, Blackpool Old Road, Little Eccleston, near Kirkham, pleaded guilty to two offences of assault.

He also admitted damaging a wall and a radiator at his girlfriend’s caravan at Singleton on Saturday.

Baker was remanded in custody to November 22 for pre-sentence reports by District Judge Pamela Baldwin sitting at Blackpool Magistrates’ Court.

The judge told Baker: “It was absolute sheer luck the injuries were not more serious.”

Keith Kirkham, prosecuting said the defendant carried out a sustained attack over a prolonged period of time.

Baker slapped and punched his girlfriend and put his hands round her throat.

Alan Godwin, defending, said his client had a lack of memory about what happened. The victim believed Baker had a drink problem, the court was told.
