A woman has appeared in court following an incident outside a Great Harwood pub on Saturday night, when a man was hit by a car.

Blackburn Magistrates' Court were told Shula Baron was the driver of the car and the injured man, Ashley Riley, was her ex-partner.

A woman who was allegedly assaulted following the collision, Laura Lee, was Mr Riley's current partner.

Scott Parker, prosecuting, said the incident happened as Mr Riley and Miss Lee left the Tavern in Great Harwood on Saturday, February 24.

He said Mr Riley had been taken to Royal Preston Hospital, where he is due to undergo plastic surgery to a leg injury and was also being treated for a displaced collarbone.

Baron, 35, of Margaret Street, Rawtenstall, pleaded not guilty to causing serious injury by dangerous driving and assaulting Miss Lee on Saturday, February 24.

She also denied assaulting Miss Lee on December 12 and stalking her between December 8 and February 24.

She pleaded guilty to intentional strangulation on December 8.

She was sent on bail to Burnley Crown Court for a trial date to be fixed.
