A man accused his wife of having an affair and then hurled a takeaway at the wall.

John Harrison, 62, of Sherwood Road, Ansdell, pleaded guilty to breaching the peace and was bound over in the sum of £200 for 12 months by Blackpool magistrates.

Paul Foster, prosecuting, said Harrison’s wife returned home after her work as a shop assistant.

It was 6pm and Harrison accused her of having an affair because she was late.

She was later than usual because she had gone to pick her daughter up in Blackpool and get them a takeaway.

Mr Foster said: “The defendant picked up his plate of takeaway and threw it against the wall.

His wife called the police and officers who went round to the address found broken crockery strewn around and food on the floor and walls.”

Brett Chappell, defending, told magistrates: “The demon drink has raised its ugly head again. My client had been drinking throughout Saturday as he watched sport. He behaved in an appalling manner.”
