A 20-year-old man who left his victim “very seriously injured” in a one-blow attack has been warned he faces jail.

Luke Glover admitted inflicting grievous bodily harm on victim Kevin Gamble, last October 4, at Burnley Crown Court.

The defendant, of Paythorne Avenue, Burnley, was bailed until August 25, for a pre-sentence report, on condition he does not approach or communicate with Mr Gamble. He has no previous convictions.

Judge Graham Knowles, QC, told Glover: “The fact that I allow you bail and order a pre-sentence report on you is not, of course, any indication as to what sentence you will receive.

“You caused a very serious injury and the judge will have the question of immediate imprisonment in mind.”
