Former Scotland football captain Colin Hendry has denied harassing and assaulting his ex-girlfriend.

Hendry (49) is said to have approached beautician Sarah Kinder in his hometown of Lytham St Annes, Lancashire, on April 18 and grabbed her by the arm several times.

Hendry is also said to have harassed Ms Kinder between March 1 and April 24 with unwanted emails and visits to her home address.

The court heard the pair had been in a five-year relationship which ended late last year but Hendry allegedly refused to accept it and "bombarded" her with text messages, which led to a harassment order being made against him in February.
