A dad of four smashed a window with his fist in frustration when he visited an address in Fleetwood.

Anthony Alcock said he had paid a man £100 for house painting which had not been carried out, and he lost his temper when the man made snide remarks to him.

Alcock, 35, of Leven Avenue, Fleetwood, pleaded guilty to causing damage.

Malcolm Isherwood, prosecuting, said Alcock went to a woman’s home in Fleetwood and argued with her son on August 8 about 8.25pm. He was asked to leave, but turned around and punched a kitchen window.

Gerry Coyle, defending, said Alcock had paid the son £100 to do some painting at his home, but it was not done. The son hid behind his mother when Alcock went to confront him, and made snide remarks., the court heard. Alcock was ordered to pay £150 compensation with a £150 court charge plus £50 costs by Blackpool magistrates.
