A man breached his bail when he rushed to his father’s side after he suffered a heart attack.

Anthony Watson, 36, of the caravan site, Angel Lane, Poulton, pleaded guilty to failing to comply with a bail condition.

Pam Smith, prosecuting, said Watson had been bailed on the condition he reported four times to police.

On February 2, Watson handed himself in at the police station, having failed to previously report in.

Tim Vickers, defending, told magistrates: “His father had a heart attack and he rushed, without thinking, to Middlesborough where his father lives. 
“His father is now recovering well. As soon as possible my client handed himself in.”

Blackpool magistrates agreed to re-bail Watson.
