A Pennar man has denied breaching a restraining order by posting on social media.

Tony Phillips, who gave his address as care of Cheriton Road, pleaded not guilty to attempting to breach a restraining order when he appeared at Haverfordwest magistrates court on Tuesday, March 5.

It is alleged that Phillips referred to his ex-partner on social media at Pembroke Dock on July 30, which he was prohibited from doing by a restraining order imposed by the court in May 2018.

Magistrates accepted jurisdiction to hear the case and a trial date was listed for April 4.

Phillips, 45, was released on unconditional bail.
