A man seen grabbing women in the street and hoisting them in the air told police officers who arrested him that he hoped their families died, a court has been told.

Peter Taylor shouted abuse at police officers.

Taylor, 22, of Sherwood Court, Sherwood Avenue, Layton, pleaded guilty to being drunk and disorderly.

He was fined £75 with £85 costs plus £20 victims’ surcharge by Blackpool magistrates.

Presiding magistrate, Marilyn Padgett, told Taylor: “What an unpleasant man you are.”

Taylor replied: “I am.”

Patrick Nelligan, defending, said: “He can only apologise for his actions. “

He added: “He has not much recollection of what went on.”
