A 24-year-old from Stourbridge has been in court after a car was allegedly driven into a crowd at the Gigmill pub.

Jack Richardson, of West Street, pleaded not guilty to two counts of wounding, two counts of assault occasioning actual bodily harm (ABH), possession of an imitation firearm and dangerous driving.

Richardson pleaded guilty to possessing a Class B drug and no plea was entered for having no insurance, failing to stop and failing to report a collision.

The defendant is set to appear at Wolverhampton Crown Court on February 14 for trial and has been remanded in custody.

Following the incident at the pub on South Road, Stourbridge, on June 18, four people were injured.

A man in his 20s suffered leg fractures, and a woman, also in her 20s, sustained ligament damage.

Two other women were treated for less serious injuries.
