A drunken joiner celebrating his birthday walked into a stranger’s house at Kirkham and took off his shirt before leaving, a court heard.

Peteris Uzulins, 44, of Blackpool Road, Kirkham, pleaded guilty to being drunk and disorderly and had the court proceedings relayed to him by an interpreter.

He was given a 12-month conditional discharge and ordered to pay a £150 court charge, £85 costs plus £15 victims’ surcharge by District Judge Joanne Hirst sitting at Blackpool Magistrates’ Court.

Uzulins said he had been celebrating his birthday and after work he and some friends had drinks.

He added that he could not remember what happened and said his behaviour was not typical as he usually fell asleep straight away if he had some drinks.
