A PARK North man will stand trial on accusations he took part in a Christmas Day attack.

Terrence Jacks, 32, of Bisley Close, Park North, last week admitted causing grievous bodily harm – but denied a more serious charge of wounding with intent.

On Friday, prosecutor Ian Fenny confirmed those pleas were not acceptable to the Crown Prosecution Service.

The assault, in the early hours of Christmas Day 2019, saw a man attacked with a pole. The victim was left with a number of injuries, including a ripped ear.
