A MAN charged with an attack which left a dad in a coma has appeared in court again.

Iain Eldridge, 35, suffered a head injury following an unprovoked attack just after midnight on New Year’s Day in Bawtry.

Paul Oakden, 21, of Kingswood Close, Bawtry, appeared at Doncaster Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday charged with grievous bodily harm.

He was committed to Doncaster Crown Court next month on conditional bail.
