£400 Compensation for Damage to Spider

A Walsall man has received a court warning after destroying a wicker display in St Paul’s Churchyard which formed part of the ‘In Bloom’ competition.

Sean Lewis, 26, pleaded guilty to criminal damage at St Paul’s Church, in St Paul’s Square on August 18.

Birmingham magistrates were told that Lewis had damaged the church’s fish and spider wicker display without any lawful excuse.

They ordered Lewis, of Coronation Street, Holly Bank, Walsall Wood, to pay the Rev Malcolm Jones, of St Paul’s Church, £400 compensation.

He was conditionally discharged for nine months and told to pay £43 costs.
