Stuart Martin, 37, of Victoria Street, Platt Bridge, appeared at Bolton Crown Court to hear that on October 11 2023 he will face a jury over allegations of causing actual bodily harm, knife possession and issuing a threat to kill.

A fortnight later a second trial is due to take place at the same court at which he will contest charges that he handled a stolen car.

He was released on bail until then.
