Mark Matthews (24), of Langroyd Road, Colne, is facing jail after admitting inflicting grievous bodily harm at Burnley Crown Court.

The defendant was bailed until December 19th for a pre-sentence report on condition he does not contact witnesses and stays out of licensed premises in Colne in the evenings.

Judge Simon Newell warned him: “It seems to me that a custodial sentence is more likely than not.”
