A MAN who admitted intentionally strangling a woman has been handed a suspended sentence.

Luke Taylor, of Skelsmergh, pleaded guilty to the intentional strangulation of a woman in Greenodd and a further charge of ABH against the same woman at an earlier hearing.

He also admitted damaging the woman's mobile phone in November 2022.

At Preston Crown Court on May 12, the 25-year-old was sentenced to 18 months imprisonment suspended for 24 months.
