Set to stand trial
A man has appeared in court accused of assaulting a woman at a property in Wishaw.
Stuart Longmire appeared at Hamilton Sheriff Court last week and pleaded not guilty to carrying out the attack at the address in Glasgow Road on August 9.
It is alleged that 36-year-old Longmire seized the woman by the hair, forced her onto the floor and then kicked her on the body.
Longmire, of Innerleithen Drive, Wishaw, was granted bail with special conditions that he does not contact the woman or enter Glasgow Road.
Longmire will return to court on January 15 for a further hearing in the case.
He is expected to stand trial on February 12.
