A MAN accused of damaging a conservatory door at his mother’s home has admitted breaching his bail.

Warren Anderton, 39, appeared before Wigan Magistrates’ Court yesterday after his mother returned home to find her son asleep on a bench in her front garden.

Under the terms of his bail, Anderton was not permitted to visit her address.

The court heard how the defendant’s mother returned to her Cherry Tree Grove home in Leigh on Tuesday (June 25) only to find her son asleep in her front garden.

She contacted the police and told how he then woke up and went across the road to see one of his friends.

He was still outside in the street when officers arrived.

Under the terms of his bail, Anderton, of no fixed abode, was barred from visiting his mother’s address and from having any contact with two named individuals.

But, despite the breach, prosecutors said Anderton remained a good candidate for bail.

Andrew Stock, defending, said his Anderton had been visiting a friend at the time, not his mother, but accepted he had then fallen asleep outside his mother’s home.

He added that his client would be able to stay with friends while he awaits his next court appearance.

Magistrates opted to re-bail Anderton but toughened up the conditions of his bail to ban him from visiting Cherry Tree Grove.

He is due to answer the criminal damage charge before Wigan Magistrates’ Court on July 9.
