A warehouseman was arrested after punching the air with his fists and shouting in the street at Blackpool for 10 minutes.

Liam Dwyer, 27, of Chestnut Walk, Partington, Manchester, pleaded guilty to being drunk and disorderly.

He was fined £150 with £85 costs plus £20 victims’ surcharge by District Judge Huw Edwards sitting at Blackpool Magistrates’ Court.

Claire Harris, prosecuting, said that on August 3, at 1am, police saw two groups pushing and shoving each officer in Market Street. Officers removed the ringleaders, who included Dwyer.

Dwyer was aggressive and tried to get back to the group.

Dwyer told the judge: “I’m sorry for my actions. It was ill-mannered.”
