A mother slashed her partner across the arm with a shard of glass during a row at their home, a court was told.

Carolyn Brooks also beat her partner across the back with a wooden spindle from their staircase.

Brooks of Derwent Avenue,Fleetwood, admitted assault when she appeared before Blackpool magistrates.

Sentence was adjourned on her until July 4 so that pre-sentence reports can be prepared on her.

The court heard the couple were going to separate but due to financial pressures the partner could not move out.
