A man accused of breaking a pub customer’s jaw in three places, leaving him needing surgery to insert two metal plates, has made his first appearance in court.

Scott Lomax is also accused of hitting another man with a glass in the disturbance at Blackpool’s Washington pub on Saturday.

Lomax, 36, of Reads Avenue, Blackpool, is charged with maliciously wounding a man causing him grievous bodily harm and attempting to wound another man, the court was told.

Rachel Parker, prosecuting, asked for the case to be heard at crown court.

Defence lawyer, Kathryn Jamieson-Sinclair, did not ask for bail for her client.

Lomax was remanded in custody to appear at Preston Crown Court on April 1 by Blackpool magistrates.
