The court was told that he had been so drunk at the time that he could not what had happened to authorities until he saw footage of the incident that had been captured on nearby CCTV.

Sauts, was unrepresented, but told the court: “I am very sorry for this. I want to go back to my family and I promise I will never drink again.”

He was ordered to complete a 130-day rehabilition activity requirement, during which he will complete one-to-one work on alcohol, relationship skills, motivation and compliance, and emotional issues.

A restraining order was granted to prevent him entering his previous property during the probation period and was ordered to pay £85 in costs and £115 for a victim surchage, totalling £200.
