A YOUNG man denies assaulting a security guard in a 'revenge attack'.

Daniel Thomas Lunn, 27, pleaded not guilty to assaulting Ian Ashworth. He will be tried by Chester magistrates on September 19.

Prosecutor Peter Frost claimed: 'We say Mr Ashworth had come across Lunn previously in the course of his job as a security guard. The Crown also says this was an act of retribution.

'Mr Ashworth was on his way to work on December 13 when Lunn allegedly said 'It's pay-back time!', and then punched him in the head.

'He was then allegedly punched again on his wrist, causing a double fracture. Lunn denies responsibility for this.'

At the same court hearing Lunn, of Richmond Court, Ellesmere Port, admitted a separate charge of obtaining services from BT by deception on July 18.

The charge states he got a telephone by saying he was called Daniel Reece, a person with a clean credit history when he was not that person and did not have a clean history.

Lunn will be sentenced after the trial, and was unconditionally bailed.
