A man has denied deliberately coughing in a paramedic’s face who arrived at his house to answer an emergency call.

Jonathan Brunsdon appeared via video-link at Cheltenham Magistrates’ Court and denied a single charge of assaulting an emergency worker.

He is accused of coughing in the face of a paramedic at Mason Road in Stroud, Gloucestershire, on Saturday.

Mr Brunsdon, 43, was remanded in custody to appear at the same court on 6 April.

He was sat behind a desk wearing a face mask, gloves and a plastic apron.

The judge warned the defendant he could face a custodial sentence if he is convicted.

A trial is due to be held at the same court on 8 June.
