A MAN has appeared in court charged with causing actual bodily harm.

Peter Clark, 36, of Basingstoke, is alleged to have punched a woman, pushing her over and causing her to hit her head on a table, knocking her unconscious.

According to the prosecution, the pair were drinking when the incident took place on August 20.

Mr Clark has pleaded not guilty and requested Crown Court trial.

The case will be presented at Winchester Crown Court on October 9.

Mr Clark has been granted bail on condition he does not contact the victim.

However, both prosecution and defence noted that he had been obeying conditions before appearing at Basingstoke Magistrates Court on September 11.
