A car valeter was late for his curfew because he was arguing with his parents about the equipment box monitoring his electronic tag being in their home.

Dominic Skiba, 20, of Cumberland Avenue, Blackpool, admitted breaching his bail.

Blackpool magistrates agreed to rebail him.

They said Skiba’s tag would be removed plus the monitoring box and he would be subject to a “doorstep” condition where he must prove to any police officer that he is at home during his curfew.

He must also report daily to the police.

Alison Quanbrough, prosecuting, said the equipment monitoring the tag showed he was out of the house after 8pm on July 21.

Jessica Partington, defending, told magistrates that Skiba said he was late because he was arguing with his mother and step-father, who did not want the tag monitoring box in their home.
