Aaron Mills, of Capel Lane, pleaded guilty at Exeter Magistrates Court to criminal damage at Fever and Boutiqpue Nightclub, in The Parade.

An Exmouth man has admitted causing damage to barrier fencing outside the town’s Fever and Boutique Nightclub in the early hours of New Year’s Eve.

Aaron Mills, aged 24, of Capel Lane, pleaded guilty to a charge of criminal damage when he appeared before magistrates sitting in Exeter this week.

He was fined £40 and ordered to pay £80 towards the costs of the damaged barrier.

The court heard how door staff at the nightclub witnessed Mills using his ‘full body weight’ to cause damage to the fencing.

Police were called at around 12.45am on Sunday, December 31, and Mills was identified on CCTV cameras.

In mitigation, solicitor Rob Jacobs told the court it was a ‘foolish mistake’ and one that Mills regrets.

He said that Mills is currently unemployed and looking for work and that should ‘keep him out of trouble’.
