Luke Benacs then sent his ex a taunting text saying “You have no wing mirrors LMFAO.”

Benacs, aged 26, of Wesham Hall Close, Wesham, near Kirkham, pleaded guilty to causing damage.

He was fined £200 with £85 costs and ordered to pay £100 compensation plus £30 victims’ surcharge by Blackpool magistrates.

Benacs was also put on a 12 months restraining order which bans him from communicating with his ex except through solicitors or social services about access to his son and from entering Meadow Crescent, Wesham.

Prosecutor, Martine Connah, said Benacs and his ex had known each other about 14 years and had child together.

On July 31 at 12.15am Benacs kept texting his ex asking if he could go round to her home. She refused and he accused her of sleeping with someone else.

He then sent a text saying she had no wing mirrors. The next morning she found her mirrors had both been damaged.

Kathryn Jamieson-Sinclair, defending, said since the end of the relationship her client said his ex had not allowed him or his family any contact with his baby son.

He had had a lot to drink before committing the damage, she said.
