AN Eastleigh man who damaged a bedroom wall at a Winchester pub has been ordered to pay compensation.

Anthony John Nichol, 53, of Shakespeare Road, admitted criminal damage at the First In Last Out pub on Wales Street, Winnall, on November 15.

He was told to pay £200 compensation and a £100 fine for failing to attend court on November 30. There was no order for costs or victim surcharge because of Nichol’s lack of money.

The financial penalty will be deducted from his benefits.
