A GLASS attack accused woman charged with scarring a pubgoer for life at a Gourock bar more than two years ago has had her protracted prosecution further delayed.

Lynda Robertson appeared in the dock at Greenock Sheriff Court as her trial before a jury was set to get under way.

However, following legal discussions between the 37-year-old's solicitor, David Nicholson, and procurator fiscal depute, Maria Murdoch, Sheriff James Varney adjourned the case until next year.

Robertson is charged with severely injuring an alleged female victim by pushing her on the body and hitting her over the head with a glass at Cleats Bar.

According to the Crown, the woman was left scarred for life as a result of the reported incident.

The accused also faces a second indictment charge of assaulting a man at the Kempock Street bar by striking him on the head.

The alleged assaults are said to have taken place on October 3, 2021.

The ongoing case was held up earlier this year due to delays in the production of CCTV footage of the alleged serious assault.

Last month, Sheriff Varney described the situation as 'simply not good enough' and warned the trial diet scheduled for November 13 was 'potentially at jeopardy' if the issues were not resolved.

Matters had to be adjourned in July for the same reason of lack of video footage.

Robertson, of Johnstone, denies the charges and had her bail order continued. Her solicitor confirmed that a special defence of self defence had previously been lodged.

A new trial date has been set for February 5 and a pre-trial hearing is due to be held on January 23.
