TOO much alcohol resulted in two young men appearing at an Ipswich court.

TOO much alcohol resulted in two young men appearing at an Ipswich court.

Tera Miah and Jason Dunnage both refused to leave Ipswich town centre during separate incidents on Saturday, January 31.

South East Suffolk Magistrates' Court heard that 18-year-old Miah was issued with a disbursal notice by police who believed his drunken behaviour would cause disorder outside Pals nightclub in Dogs Head Street. The Suffolk College Business Studies student was told to go home and not return to the area for at least 12 hours. Less than an hour later Miah, of Curriers Lane, was seen outside the New York Exchange Bar close to Pals.

On the same evening 26-year-old Dunnage was refused entry into Mojo's Nightclub in Northgate Street due to his drunken manner. He swore at police and refused to leave the area so was issued with a disbursal notice. Dunnage of Cemetery Road was later reported to be at the Hawk Taxi office in Old Foundry Road.

Both men pleaded guilty to failing to comply with a disbursal notice but both said they had been on their way home.

Miah was fined �30 and told to pay a �15 victim surcharge but no court costs were ordered because his student benefits only amounted to �30 per week.
