Police were then called and Horrocks became so agitated he had to be taken to the floor and arrested for causing a breach of the peace.

Horrocks admitted the offence and was bound over to keep the peace for 12 months in the sum of £150.

He told the court: “I have no excuses.

“I felt like an outsider watching what was going on.”
