Celebrity blogger Savvas Morgan claims he suffered swelling to his eye after an alleged incident involving the 25-year-old in Chelmsford, Essex, last year.

This morning the court will hear prosecution and defence closing speeches before District Judge Angus Hamilton retires to consider his verdict.
