A care worker brawled with a doorman after being told he and his charge could not go back into a bar because they were too drunk.

Christopher Heys, 33, of Billington Street East, Wesham, pleaded guilty to behaving in a threatening manner.

He was fined £45 with £85 costs and ordered to pay compensation of £50 plus £20 victims’ surcharge by Blackpool magistrates.

Sandra Ardern, prosecuting, said Heys and the man he cared for were asked to finish their drinks and leave Yates, in Market Street.

After being arrested Heys told police he believed the doorman had hit him first.

Steven Townley, defending, said Heys admitted reacting badly when they were asked to leave. He denied telling the doorman he would knock him out.
