A 34-year-old man from Lynn has admitted being drunk and disorderly in the town, resulting in him kicking shop doors.

Bradley Edge, of Columbia Way, pleaded guilty to the charge relating to the offence in Norfolk Street in the early hours of February 11.

Fergus Harold, prosecuting, told Lynn’s Magistrates’ Court that officers found Edge walking along the road at 2.25am and he appeared to be drunk.

He said the defendant was kicking various shop doors and was asked to leave.

The court heard that Edge did initially leave but returned and told officers they would “have to arrest him”, which they did.

Edge, representing himself, when asked if he had any mitigation said: “I’m guilty, end of.”

A member of the public sat in the gallery said that Edge had been spiked that night.

Magistrates ordered him to pay a £40 fine, £40 in costs and a £30 victim surcharge.
