The 42-year-old defendant was ordered to pay a £40 fine, along with a £30 victim surcharge.

He was also bound over for a year in the sum of £50.

The court heard the breach of the peace complaint was made by the hospital.

The magistrates bench heard the offences put Lomax in breach of a conditional discharge for being drunk and disorderly in May 2018, but no further action was taken on the breach.
