It is alleged he drove a Citroen Berlingo van dangerously on Liverpool Road on Saturday June 8.

A charge of driving without due care and attention was withdrawn by the prosecution.

While the bench offered to hold a trial in the magistrates’ court, Jennings elected for the case to be sent to the higher court.

He was remanded on unconditional bail until a hearing at Bolton Crown Court on Wednesday, September 4.
