AN Ipswich man is nearly £200 out of pocket today after smashing a window in the town centre because a cash machine would not give him money.

Kenny Woolnough, of Howe Avenue, admitted smashing the window of Meridian Business Support in Westgate Street at about midnight on November 13.

A member of the public saw the 27-year-old break the window before walking away with another man.

A police officer later located the pair and Woolnough admitted being the one who broke the window.

During a hearing at South East Suffolk Magistrates' Court on Friday, Woolnough pleaded guilty to criminal damage and said: “It was just a drunk moment of madness.

“I consumed too much alcohol; I didn't know what I was doing.”
