A man from Padiham has been found guilty of being drunk and disorderly in his absence at Burnley Magistrates Court.

Michael Exton (46) had been reported to the police for causing problems in the street. Officers saw him with a half-empty bottle of alcohol and he was shouting loudly and stumbling all over the street.

The court heard Exton, who had 53 offences on his record, had three previous convictions for public disorder.

Exton, of Dean Street, Padiham, was convicted of being drunk and disorderly on Hunslet Street, Burnley, on Friday, October 5th after the Bench found the case proved in his absence.

He was fined and told to pay £85 costs and a £30 victim surcharge.
