A Gayton man who smashed a care home window has been fined.

Alan Touse, 60, admitted a charge of causing criminal damage at the Mill House Residential Care Home, in Gayton, on July 21.

Prosecutor Delia Matthew told the hearing in Lynn Magistrates’ Court yesterday that another resident had seen Touse smash the window.

Mrs Matthew stated that Touse told staff that he smashed it as he was angry.

She said the window had cost £100 to repair and that it was reported to the police.

He had no previous convictions.

In mitigation, George Sorrell told the court that Touse, who lives at the home in 
Litcham Road, suffers from depression.

He said that Touse was sorry for what had happened.

Mr Sorrell said the defendant had also said the staff at the home were very good to him.

Touse was ordered to pay £100 compensation along with £85 costs along with the £150 court charge.
