A Blackpool tourist found his girlfriend in the arms of another man before he got booted out of a hotel and then nicked for drink-driving.

 

Holidaymaker Jonathan Ashton, 34, of Moorland Road, Bolton, had a nightmare trip to Blackpool – with resort magistrates told he went to the loo and returned to find his girlfriend in the arms of another man.

After a row, he was then booted out of his hotel – and arrested for drink-driving on the way home, the court was told.

“To compound it all, he lost his job,” defence lawyer Mitch Sarangi said.
