A 20-year-old man who was barred from a Clitheroe pub responded by throwing a stone through a window.

Blackburn magistrates heard that a month earlier Joseph Alan Ingham had smashed a car wing mirror during another “temper tantrum”.

Ingham, of Beech Street, Clitheroe, pleaded guilty to damaging a window belonging to Shan Parkinson at the Kings Arms and damaging a car wing mirror belonging to Christine Noble.

He was made subject to an electronically monitored curfew between 8 pm and 7 am for four weeks and ordered to pay £300 in compensation for the pub window and £100 for the wing mirror.

Miss Parveen Akhtar (prosecuting) said the owner of the car was woken in the early hours by the sound of shouting. She looked out to see Ingham pull the mirror off her car.

Ingham had gone into the Kings Arms in a drunken state and was annoying customers.

The landlady asked him to leave and then told him he was barred.

“He said if that was the case he would put the windows in, picked up a rock and threw it,” said Miss Akhtar.
