A BRIERLEY Hill man who smashed three windows at The Kingfisher nightclub with his fist has been told he must carry out 120 hours unpaid work in the community.

Slaughterhouse worker John Williams shattered one window in anger after being thrown out of the premises and broke two more when his friends began laughing, said Edward Souslby, prosecuting.

He said that at the time the 31-year-old was still subject to a 12 month jail term that had been suspended for two years on charges of false representation.

Williams, of Fens Crescent, admitted criminal damage, failing to surrender to bail and also breaching the suspended sentence order.

Recorder Nigel Baker QC told him the criminal damage offence at The Kingfisher was an "unpleasant matter" as he ordered him to pay £200 compensation for breaking the windows.

He also ordered Williams to pay £340 costs and fined him a nominal £20 for the breach because it took place just a matter of days before the end of the two year period.

Mukhtar Ubhi, defending, told Wolverhampton Crown Court that Williams had offered to pay for the damage he caused immediately because he accepted his behaviour had been "irresponsible".
