He was taken to Peterborough City Hospital with a potentially life-threatening injury.

Judge Simon Hirst adjourned the case for a trial at Lincoln Crown Court on 3 February next year. It is expected to last three days.

Wheeler was granted conditional bail and will next appear at Lincoln Crown Court for a pre-trial hearing on 30 September.
