A man has appeared in court accused of groping a woman at Haydock Park Racecourse.

Gerard McFarlane formally denied sexually assaulting a woman at the racecourse on December 14 when he appeared before JPs.

The 31-year-old, of Ormskirk Road, Wigan, also stands accused of assaulting two police officers the following day.

Prosecutors allege that McFarlane grabbed the victim, who is aged over 16, from behind as she danced on a chair near the edge of the dancefloor. He was bailed until February 26.
