A teenager punched a bar manager on the ear.

Jordan Briggs, 18, of Mowbray Road, Fleetwood, pleaded guilty to assault.

He was fined £40 with £84 costs and ordered to pay £50 compensation to the bar manager plus £30 victims’ surcharge by Blackpool magistrates.

Prosecutor, Martine Connah, said the manager of the Strawberry Gardens, Fleetwood, had finished work and was walking along Hilton Street when he saw a disturbance involving young men,

Police officers arrived in the area and Briggs went up to the manager, called him a grass and punched him in the side of the head, before saying he was going to stab him.

The manager kicked him and the defendant denied the stab threat.
