The complainant’s daughter went out to speak him, according to Mrs Haslam, and he punched a kitchen window twice breaking the glass.

Bailey pleaded guilty to causing damage after the incident on April 27.

The defendant, who represented himself in court, said he had had an argument with someone in a pub and he had gone to his child’s mum’s address where he was supposed to be staying but they would not let him in.

Magistrates fined bailey £120 and ordered him to pay £85 costs and a £30 victim surcharge.
