A WORCESTER man who attacked a woman more than 150 miles away from the city is among the notable cases heard in Worcester's Magistrates Court.

Bryn Corbett-Stanley, of Chedworth Drive, Worcester, appeared before magistrates in the city charged with assaulting a woman in Blackpool on December 5 last year.

The 19 year-old admitted the assault, as well as further charges of smashing a door and a window at the woman’s house, and committing an offence while subject to a conditional discharge.

The charges allege that on the day in question he was at the woman’s address, where he smashed a door and a window of unknown value before assaulting another woman.

He was convicted of the assault charges, as well as a further assault charge on the same woman which took place on December 21 at Lancashire Youth Court in February this year.

Magistrates fined Corbett-Stanley £40 for the damaged front door and ordered him to pay a £95 victim surcharge and court costs of £135.

They also ordered him to pay £100 in compensation for the first assault and issued a 12-month community order.

Also included was a restraining order banning him from being within 100 metres of Palatine Road, Blackpool.

Meanwhile, a Worcestershire woman accused of being involved in supplying drugs including crack cocaine and diamorphine will stand trial next month.

Elizabeth Taylor, of Pershore Court, Kidderminster, appeared before magistrates in Worcester on April 20 to face three counts of drug supply and another of possession of a knife in Kidderminster.

The offences are alleged to have taken place between September 16 and 29 last year.

The 40 year-old did not enter a plea as the case was sent straight to Worcester Crown Court, where she will stand trial on May 18.
