A man terrified people in a park at Wesham when he threatened to kill some children saying: “ I hate kids, I’ll kill them all.”

Shaun Costigan had been released from prison that day and had drunk a bottle of wine before he frightened people in the park at the back of McColls newsagent on Lytham Road.

Costigan, 54, formerly of Wesham, now of no fixed address, pleaded guilty to being drunk and disorderly.

He was ordered to be detained in the precincts of the court for half-a-day by District Judge David Scanlon sitting at Blackpool Magistrates’ Court.
