A teenager who made a nuisance outside his ex-girlfriend’s home found himself back in trouble the day after his release from custody.

Lewis Danville was asked to leave, but returned 10 minutes later and was shouting through the letterbox.

A court was told he had gone round to the address to speak to his ex about the end of their relationship.

He was someone who found it difficult to deal with rejection. Danville, 18, of Alexandra Road, Blackpool was given six months youth custody by a judge at Preston Crown Court. He had admitted a charge of affray.

Julie Taylor, defending, said he had significant problems dealing with things like rejection. She said: “He drinks to excess to cope with stress and difficulties he faces. He has also become involved in illicit drug use and legal highs. He seemed to believe the relationship was continuing. He had been drinking and thought it would be a good idea to go round and speak to her about the end of the relationship”.
