Maz Sharif, defending, said Stanley who has been diagnosed with ADHD had been struggling for somewhere to stay during a cold night after he had left his keys at his mother’s home.

Magistrates sentenced Stanley to a six-month conditional discharge but warned if he commits another offence during this time he will be re-sentenced for the drunk-and-disorderly matter. He must pay a £21 victim surcharge.
