A man is to be sentenced after he admitted assaulting a neighbour with a bird bath.

Adrian Lake, 60, appeared at Norwich Magistrates Court on Monday after having been charged with an offence of unlawfully and maliciously wounding a neighbour without intent to do grievous bodily harm.

The court heard the neighbour had been repeatedly struck with a bird bath following an argument.

Lake, of Bellrope Lane, Wymondham, pleaded guilty to the offence, which happened on September 20.

He also admitted another offence of destroying a wire supplying electricity to a neighbour on the same date.

District Judge Shanta Deonarine sent the case to Norwich Crown Court for sentence at a date to be fixed.

Lake, who appeared in court via videolink, was remanded in custody until the sentencing hearing at the crown court.
