But on June 16 he was at the hospital again and caused a disturbance.

Lomax, of Dunkirk Lane, Leyland, pleaded guilty to charges of being drunk and disorderly and to breaching the peace.

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.

Possessions were damaged by man

A man caused £500 of damage to a woman’s possessions during an incident at her home.

Mark Anthony Gallagher, of Sheffield Drive, Lea, Preston, appeared before Preston Magistrates’ Court.

Prosecutors said the incident happened at an address on West Park Avenue on June 10.

The 34-year-old defendant pleaded guilty to criminal damage to a living room wall, a kitchen wall, items of clothing, a hairdryer, glasses and a USB stick.

The bench ordered him to carry out 55 hours of unpaid work and to pay £500 compensation.

He was given a rehabilitation activity and restraining order banning him contacting the woman, and must also pay an £85 surcharge and £85 towards prosecution costs.
