A PEMBROKESHIRE man has been charged with controlling behaviour and assaulting his partner.

Nigel Hooper, 51, of Cresselly, was charged with two offences against a woman.

Hooper was charged with engaging in controlling or coercive behaviour against his partner between December 2015 and this March.

It was alleged that he would constantly check on her whereabouts, repeatedly called and messaged her, and controlled her access to finances – all under fear if violence.

The defendant was re-admitted to bail, and will appear to enter his plea at Swansea Crown Court on April 26.
