A scout for a football agency hired a bouncy castle for a children’s party – and later pawned it to get money.

Anthony O’Kelly, 32, formerly of Lytham Road, Warton, now living at Glynwood Park, Farnworth, pleaded guilty to theft of a purple bouncy castle valued at £500 and fraud by pawning it.

He was sentenced to an eight-week curfew and ordered to pay £100 compensation with £85 costs by Blackpool magistrates.
