Thief was on CCTV in an angling store

A convicted burglar has admitted breaching his suspended jail term - as well as stealing a fishing lamp from an angling shop.

John Butler, 40, of Watling Street Road, Ribbleton, was given a suspended term by Burnley Crown Court last year for burgling a bike from a garage.

At that time he received a broken nose when the victim discovered him.

Prosecuting, Daniel Prowse said on April 1, the manager of Angling Direct on Church Street, Preston, checked CCTV and saw Butler hide a lamp up his jacket - before strolling to the till and paying for another item.

Recorder Michael Murray, sitting at Preston Crown Court, said he would make Butler’s order ‘more onerous’ by adding 50 hours unpaid work.

He added: “You’ve got yourself into trouble as you know by stealing - it was stupid.”

Pub fight man gets unpaid work order

A man who left a pub goer with a scar to his lip in a row about a pool game has been sentenced to 200 hours of unpaid work.

Kieron Travis, of Alder Drive, Hoghton, Preston, was charged after a scuffle broke out in the Black Horse on Gregson Lane, near Hoghton, on April 12.

The 40-year-old previously pleaded guilty to causing actual bodily harm to David Cuerden.

Travis had initially been a peacemaker when the row broke out in the pub, but then struck his victim in the face when tempers flared.

The married dad-of-two must was also ordered to complete 20 rehabilitation days.

The bench at Preston Magistrates’ Court ruled Travis must pay his victim £1,500 in compensation, for his injury.
