A MAN who admitted to an assault on a police officer will be sentenced in May.

Brett Connor, of Firs Lane, Leigh indicated a guilty plea at Liverpool Magistrates' Court to an assault of an emergency worker on Boxing Day last year in St Helens.

Connor, 28, was remanded on unconditional bail as the case was adjourned for a pre-sentence report to be prepared.

He will appear back at the court on May 13.
