Mark Prescott said the defendant, Stuart Gallear threatened him on the phone after finding out he was having an affair with his 42-year-old wife.

Mr Prescott told a hushed court that Gallear said: “I am not coming for you now but I will find you and I will kill you.”

He told the court that the relationship with Mrs Gallear first became physical in April 2016 after they began contacting each other a year earlier.
