A WOMAN from Ammanford accused of wounding a man in the town attempted to have her bail conditions changed so she could work.

However Judge Geraint Walters did not look kindly on Shaunagh Downing's attempt to be allowed back into Carmarthenshire so she work for her mother's cleaning company.

Downing, of Derwedd Avenue, Gwaun Cae Gurwen, has been banned from entering Carmarthenshire, including Ammanford, until after her trial, set to take place on November 15.

Downing, 22, faces three charges including allegedly wounding Daniel Jonas and being in possession of an offensive weapon. The incidents are alleged to have taken place in July.

Downing's case was in Swansea Crown Court on September 23, where it was attempted to change her bail conditions.

Lawyers argued that the change was so Downing could go to a number of locations around Carmarthenshire during the day and still abide by curfew in the evenings.

However Judge Geraint Walters refused the application, saying: "I do not feel it is sensible in the last to allow her back into the county".

On August 2, Downing was released from court on conditional bail, the conditions being that she resides with her aunt in Derwedd Avenue, Gwaun Cae Gurwen, and that she doesn’t enter Carmarthenshire, including Ammanford.

She has pleaded not guilty to all charges.
