2:36pm Wednesday 18th September 2013 in News
A man who attacked the house of his brother and partner was given a five-year restraining order.
Christopher Horsfall had dumped a stolen motorbike at the home of his brother Leon and his girlfriend Rachel Roberts in the early hours, Manchester Crown Court heard.
But after the stolen Honda was found by Lancashire Police in the kitchen, Horsfall turned up at the Cliff Street property and smashed their front window.
Horsfall, 43, formerly of West Street, Colne, who has been on remand for four months, admitted handling stolen goods and causing criminal damage.
He was given a 12-month prison sentence, suspended for 12 months, with a year-long supervision programme and 100 hours community service.
He must also attend alcohol-related group work as part of his term.
Mr Recorder Medland also imposed a five-year restraining order, preventing any contact between the defendant and his brother and Miss Roberts, and he must not go within 200 yards of their new home in Extwistle Street, Nelson.
