A PRISONER caused damage to a cell at Blackpool police station when he threw food at the walls and urinated on the bedding and clothing he had been given.

Richard Maguire was in a ‘life monitoring cell’ in which the inmate’s heartbeat and breathing could be detected and which was coated in a special paint.

Maguire, 32, of Wordsworth Road, Thameside, Manchester, pleaded guilty to causing £250 of damage.

He was ordered to pay £100 compensation and £50 costs by Blackpool magistrates.

Tracy Yates, prosecuting, said Maguire was in a cell when he threw food at the walls and urinated on clothing and bedding on March 9.

Kathryn Jamieson-Sinclair, defending, told magistrates Maguire said he had been calling for an officer but no-one had responded.

He had thrown his chicken curry meal at the wall.

Maguire had offered to clean the cell.
