Man is fined for criminal damage

A BROUGHTON man who caused criminal damage to a pair of spectacles, a dishwasher and vertical slat blind has been fined £200.

Scunthorpe Magistrates’ Court heard how Mark Wood, 29, of Brooklands Avenue damaged the items, worth about £900, in Broughton on April 27, 2012.

On the same day Wood assaulted Gillian Houghton by beating her.

Wood admitted both offences and has been ordered to pay £452.98 compensation, £85 court costs and a £15 victim surcharge. He has also been given a two-year community order, a two-year restraining order and has to attend an Integrated Domestic Abuse Programme for 43 days.
