A MAN has been ordered to do 40 hours of unpaid work after admitting assaulting a woman and damaging a mirror.

Christopher Higgins, of Lingard Street, Leigh, pleaded guilty to causing the victim actual bodily harm and £150 damage to her 6ft mirror on January 28.

The 34-year-old was given a community order by Wigan and Leigh Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday.

As well as the community service Higgins has to adhere to a rehabilitation activity requirement and pay £200 compensation, an £85 victim surcharge and £85 court costs.

Scott Rimmer, of Aldersgreen Road, Hindley, was ordered to pay £880 after pleading guilty to committing motoring offences in the town on April 5 and being caught in possession of cannabis.

The 23-year-old was fined £350 for driving without insurance and a further £350 for driving without due care and attention.

He also failed to stop when told to do so by police and did not have a licence to drive the car.

Rimmer was ordered to pay £60 compensation, a £35 victim surcharge and £85 court costs and was disqualified from holding or obtaining a driving licence for 12 months.

Ann-Marie Edwards, of Empress Drive, Leigh, was given a 10-week prison sentence suspended for 12 months after admitting failing to adhere to the requirements of a community order imposed for a burglary she committed last May.

Magistrates said the latest offence was particularly serious as the 23-year-old had wilfully and persistently failed to comply with court orders.

As well as being handed the suspended prison sentence Edwards was ordered to adhere to drug rehabilitation and rehabilitation activity requirements.

Warrants were issued for the arrests of 31-year-olds Adam King and Andrew Ashcroft for failing to turn up in court in answer to bail.

King, of Chaucer Grove, Atherton, is accused of assaulting a male in Tyldesley on November 18.

Ashcroft, of Thirlmere Street, Leigh, is accused of being in charge of two dogs – a Staffordshire bull terrier and a shih-tzu – which were dangerously out of control and injured a female in Golborne in June 2015.
