Blackpool Magistrates Court

John Rainey, 34, formerly of Luton Road, Anchorsholme, is alleged to have returned to the address and threatened to slash two men.

The men are due to give evidence against Rainey in a wounding trial which will be heard at Preston Crown Court.

Rainey was bailed earlier this week to an address in Ashton, Preston, but admitted breaching the terms of his bail by travelling into Blackpool.

His lawyer Trevor Colebourne said:”He went to visit his mother and did not realise he had breached his bail terms by doing so.”

Blackpool magistrates revoked his bail and remanded Rainey in custody until his appearance at the higher court.

He will now appear on October 31.
