A man breached a court order – after his ex girlfriend’s dog ran into his flat.
Barry Taylor spoke to his ex who followed her dog into his flat and then they both walked out together, a court was told.
They were heard and seen by a woman police officer who knew them and was in the area on another inquiry.
Taylor, 40, of Carshalton Road, North Shore, pleaded guilty to breaching a restraining order.
He was bailed for pre-sentence reports by District Judge Jeff Brailsford sitting at Blackpool Magistrates’ Court.
Pam Smith, prosecuting, said a police woman on Carshalton Road heard voices coming from Taylor’s flat and recognised them as his and his ex’s on May 18.
They came out of the flats’ main door together.
The woman had a dog and they walked down the road together.
Steven Townley, defending, said the flats’ communal front door was left open and Taylor’s ex’s dog went running into Taylor’s flat, followed by his ex.
Mr Townley added: “He told her he could have nothing to do with her and asked her to leave.
“The mistake he made was to walk out and along the road with her.”
