A Wyberton man damaged a police cell “making it useless”.

Dean Dawson (42), of Low Road, was detained after CCTV operators alerted police to an incident in Boston at about 6.30pm on August 8.

Nick Todd, prosecuting, told Boston magistrates Dawson picked paint off a wall and plaster around a ceiling rose, “according to the police making the cell useless”.

Dawson was given a year’s conditional discharge with £45 costs and a £15 victim surcharge when he admitted being drunk and disorderly and criminal damage.

Solicitor Andrew Goldsborough said the damage resulted from a “mix of slight boredom and slight agitation”.
