Man smashed terrified mum's patio door in early morning rampage

A drunken man terrified a mother and her children when he mindlessly smashed her patio door.

Connor John Laydon Moore, 18, of Selina Terrace, Maryport, went on the rampage in Flimby on January 18 after downing two bottles of vodka.

John Moran, prosecuting at Workington’s magistrates court, said police later found Moore lying in a garden together with a large bottle of whisky.

He said: “The victim was in bed at 5.30 in the morning when she heard a loud and repetitive banging. She had children in the house and she was terrified as a result of what had happened.”

Moore pleaded guilty to one charge of criminal damage to property valued under £5,000 when he appeared before magistrates.

Claire Kirkpatrick, defending, said her client could not remember how he got there or why he caused the damage and that had no issues with anyone living at that address.

Moore been living with his parents but they were not prepared to have him back with them, the court heard.

Ms Kirkpatrick said that Moore now didn’t know where to turn to and was extremely upset about his circumstances. The court also heard that he had been physically violent towards police officers trying to take him to the court.

Moore’s case was adjourned for a full probation report. He was granted bail with conditions forbidding him to be drunk in a public place and to co-operate with the probation service.
