A chef found himself back before a court after his hectic work schedule over Christmas and New Year led to him breaching a court order.

Nicky Aspinall, 23, of Church Street, Blackpool, a chef at The Lord Derby pub, St Annes, pleaded guilty to failing to comply with the order.

He was sentenced to do 20 extra hours unpaid work for the community and ordered to pay £50 costs by Blackpool magistrates.

Neal Brookes, prosecuting, said Aspinall had been put on 12 months supervision and ordered to do 160 hours unpaid work for the community for offences of possessing a blade in public and taking a motor vehicle without consent.

Aspinall had 86 hours of the payback work remaining and he had not done any work since November last year.

Patrick Nelligan, defending, said over the festive period Aspinall had worked 12-hour shifts almost daily in his job as a pub chef.
