Three men were injured during the disorder in Wednesfield on June 23, 2022, with Jake Winters suffering life changing injuries after almost having his hand hacked off with a machete.

Myckel Betty, 21, denies wounding Mr Winters but has previously pleading guilty to wounding and possessing a machete in connection with the fight.

His co-defendant Joshua Francis, 23, denies wounding Mr Winters, another count of wounding and possessing a machete.

The two defendants have been separated in the dock of Wolverhampton by a perspex screen.
