Mansfield magistrates were told how Lee west (27), of Brierley Cottages, kicked an internal door, causing a glass brick to smash, after slamming his fists down on the bar.

Chris Perry, defending, said: “Mr West was detained two weeks ago at work and gave his full cooperation, pleading guilty at the first opportunity.

“This is not part of a current pattern and he has not returned to the pub - he was not drunk at the time.”
