A man is to be sentenced next year after admitting a serious assault charge.

Dylan Culshaw, 26, of Willows Lane, Accrington, pleaded guilty to inflicting grievous bodily harm with intent when he appeared at Preston Crown Court earlier this week.

The incident is believed to have taken place on July 8.

Culshaw was granted conditional bail until his sentence hearing on January 31, 2024, so that a pre-sentence report can be compiled.

The conditions of his bail are that he must not contact his victim in any way, and must abide by a curfew to stay within his address between the hours of 8pm and 7am daily.
