A man who admitted assaulting a neighbour with a birdbath has had his sentencing adjourned.

Adrian Lake, 60, admitted wounding a neighbour, who was said to have been repeatedly stuck with a bird bath following an argument.

Lake of Bellrope Lane, Wymondham, pleaded guilty to causing grievous bodily harm on September 20, this year.

He also admitted criminal damage on the same date.

Lake appeared over a link from Peterborough jail for sentence at Norwich Crown Court but Recorder Guy Ayers said that he wanted him to be represented at the hearing and also thought there should be a psychiatric report in the case.
