A magistrate has warned a Driffield teenager to cut down on alcohol after hearing about his threatening behaviour while drunk.

Jacob Ransley, 18, of Southfield Close, pleaded guilty to threatening behaviour towards Eldon Strangeway and Gareth Ellis at Driffield on New Year’s Eve last year.

Chariman of the bench, sitting at Beverley Magistrates’ Court, Clive Palmerley told him: “Alcohol played a large part in this offence and in order for the risk level to remain low you do need to address your alcohol consumption.”
