AN NHS electrician has been warned by a court his use of drugs was endangering lives.

Christian Bullock was found with cocaine and cannabis after losing his temper when a man on a stag do made an indecent proposal to his girlfiend.

Bullock, 23, of Betrand Avenue, Grange Park, pleaded guilty to two offences of illegal drug possession and one offence of being drunk and disorderly.

He was sentenced to an eight-week curfew from 9pm to 6am, fined £170 with £85 costs and ordered to pay the £15 victims’ surcharge by Blackpool magistrates.

Presiding magistrate, Charles Tracey, warned Bullock there would be a tragedy if he continued using drugs socially while doing a job like his.

Martine Connah, prosecuting, said doormen restrained Bullock on the floor outside the Walkabout club, saying he had been violent inside and outside the premises on September 8. Bullock, who was drunk, was rude to police who helped him to his feet. The drugs were found on him when he was searched.

Bullock told magistrates that he just used drugs socially, probably only three times a year. He added that he lost his temper in the club after a man exposed himself to his girlfriend and asked her to have a threesome.
