A man has pleaded not guilty to attempted murder over an attack which hospitalised a woman with serious injuries.

Darren Robertson, 38, of no fixed abode, appeared before Reading Crown Court today (March 19).

This was in connection with an incident near Micklefield Park, in High Wycombe, on February 18.

A woman in her 40s suffered serious injuries and was hospitalised.

In court today, Robertson wore a blue-and-yellow tracksuit and bottoms.

He denied an attempted murder charge - but pleaded guilty to wounding the woman with intent.

A trial date has been fixed for the week beginning July 1.
