Man faces ‘significant sentence’ after Skegness pub stabbing

He has been remanded in custody.

A man who admitted a pub stabbing has been warned he faces a ‘significant sentence’.

Fredrick Ward, 39, of Alexandra Road, Skegness, pleaded guilty to wounding Mark Price with intent to cause him grievous bodily harm when he appeared before Lincoln Crown Court.

The charge follows an incident at the The Victoria pub on Wainfleet Road, Skegness, on the evening of November 26 this year.

Ward, who appeared in court via video link, was remanded into custody and sentence was adjourned to January 26 for the preparation of a probation report.

Recorder Gareth Evans QC told Ward: “It is a significant sentence.

“I have requested a pre-sentence report on you so that the court has the full details on you before it passes sentence.”
