A 19-year-old youth attacked a young man on a staff night out in Skegness.

Calvin Gavin Blunden, now living at an address in Hampshire, was said to have hit Andrew Williams in the toilets of the Grand Central club on Grand Parade, at around 1.45am on July 13.

The court heard that, after making offensive comments to Mr Williams, he hit him in the right eye after which they grappled and fell to the floor before club staff pulled Blunden off and evicted him from the club.

Later, when Mr Williams went outside to a burger van, he saw Blunden with some friends and Blunden again hit him and he fell over and was punched and kicked several times before staff pulled them off.

Blunden told police it was his last night in Skegness before going to live at his father's in Hampshire, and he had gone out with friends to 'get hammered'.

In mitigation, Dave Clapham said it was a case of a 19-year old who couldn't carry his drink.

He said Blunden accepted he threw the punch that caused the injury but denied kicking him.

Magistrates ordered he carry out 150 hours of unpaid work for the community and pay £150 in compensation to Mr Williams.
