A man shouted and swore in a busy McDonald’s restaurant, upsetting staff and customers, a court was told.

Henry Harrison, 54, of Jeffrey Square, Blackpool, pleaded guilty to being drunk and disorderly.

He was given a 12-month conditional discharge and ordered to pay £25 costs plus £15 victims’ surcharge by Blackpool Magistrates’ Court.

Alison Quanbrough, prosecuting, said on February 15, Harrison tried to interfere in an inquiry police were making in McDonalds, Bank Hey Street.

He then tried to shoulder-barge an officer and was warned about his behaviour, but continued shouting and swearing.

Harrison apologised and said he had had a difficult time over the past months, with his mother dying last year.
