A Bridlington visitor has appeared in court accused of a violent assault in the street in which a girl lost a tooth.

Lee Singh, 35, was visiting Bridlington with his father when he is accused of becoming involved in a street disturbance during a night out on the Esplanade on June 7.

A girl lost a front tooth and received a broken nose.

Singh of Canterbury Avenue, Bradford, is charged with causing actual bodily harm to a named woman.

Singh made a 10-minute appearance in front of Recorder Caroline Wigin at Hull Crown Court on (Monday November 2).

He made no indication of plea at this stage, but he pleaded not guilty in an earlier hearing in Beverley Magistrates’ Court..

Principal crown advocate Philip Evans set out the legal timetable for the case.

Recorder Caroline Wigin ordered Singh to stand as he told him: “The case will next be before the court on January 13 for a plea and case management hearing. A trial has been scheduled for February 1. If you fail to attend a trial then it could take place in your absence.”

Singh was allowed to walk free on bail.
