A Sutton boozer who began shouting and swearing about immigration in the Idlewells Shopping Centre, has appeared before the courts.

Gary Stuart Dyke, 40, of Clegg Hill Drive, Huthwaite, admitted being drunk and disorderly in the shopping centre on Friday March 18.

Ruth Snodin, prosecuting, said Dyke shouted: “We should go down the ports and stop all the immigrants coming in.”

Dyke told the court: “Alcohol is a big issue in my life. It always has been.

“I have been brought up with alcohol. It is getting me in trouble with what I say.”

Magistrates fined him £80 and ordered him to pay costs of £40 and a victim surcharge of £20.

He was advised to seek professional help with his drinking.
