A trial date has been fixed for an Aspull man accused of assaulting three police officers.

Andres Flores, 53, of Caldford Close, has denied responsibility for an incident involving two sergeants and constable on November 4 last year.

Prosecutors say that the incident was caught on police bodycam devices.

He was bailed in his absence by Wigan and Leigh magistrates to face a two-day hearing at the same venue on October 25 and 26.

An earlier trial had to be abandoned after magistrates ruled there was not enough court time available.
