Blackpool Magistrates' Court

A defendant did not attend his trial and was found guilty in his absence of assaulting his girlfriend.

Ashley Tombs, 26, formerly of Bold Street, Fleetwood, now living at Cedar Avenue in the port, pleaded guilty to failing to answer bail. Martin Hillson, defending, said his client did not attend the trial as he had mixed-up the court date.

Tombs was bailed for pre-sentence reports by Blackpool magistrates.
