The court heard today Lewis Burton allegedly suffered a head injury after being hit by a lamp when he was sleeping, the prosecution said.

Prosecutor Katie Weiss told the court Lewis Burton had begged the operator to send help, and that officers had described the scene as something out of a horror movie.

Highbury Corner Magistrates’ Court were told by Flack’s lawyers that Lewis Burton did not support the prosecutions case, and that the two were still together. Paul Morris, defending Caroline Flack, said: “He is not the victim, as he would say, he was a witness.”

The trial is expected to take no longer than one and a half days.
