A MAN accused of punching another outside a Trowbridge pub has been banned by a judge from going to the nearby park.

Appearing before Swindon Crown Court on Tuesday morning, Kyron Denmark, 20, of Hill Street, Hilperton, pleaded not guilty to causing grievous bodily harm and causing grievous bodily harm with intent.

It is alleged he got off his bike near the Albany Palace, Park Road, on July 8 last year and punched Anthony Fleming once before fleeing the scene.

Judge Peter Crabtree bailed Denmark to live and sleep in Hilperton and not to go to Trowbridge Park or Park Road in the town.

The trial has been set for April 28.

Tom Wilkins appeared for the Crown. Denmark was represented in court by barrister Tony Bignall.

Guidelines produced by the Sentencing Council set the punishment for those convicted of GBH with intent, which is the more serious charge Denmark faces, at between three and 16 years in custody. The maximum sentence is life imprisonment.

GBH carries a lower punishment, with a maximum jail term of five years.
