He is currently remanded and will appear before Sheffield Magistrates’ Court later this morning (Saturday 27 April).

Williams was arrested on Thursday, almost two weeks after an assault which left his former partner Britney Salim, 23, with appalling injuries including seven broken ribs, internal bleeding and swelling to the brain.
A fundraising appeal has been launched to support Britney and her young daughter Preiya, who is also Williams’ daughter.
