Mr Jones received a 26-week prison sentence, suspended for 12 months.

The custodial sentence was suspended due to his guilty plea and progress with probation.

But the time frame was extended from 16 weeks to 26 due to it being an offence against an emergency worker.

He is also to complete 180 hours of unpaid work, and pay £250 in compensation and £85 in costs to the Crown Prosecution Service, to be paid in monthly £25 instalments from May 31.

This made a total payment of £335.

An application was also made for deductions from Mr Jones’ benefits.
