A MAN from Rhyl has been handed a restraining order, unpaid work and a fine after he was found guilty of criminal damage to property and two counts of common assault.

Jamie Kingsley, 26, of East Parade, was accused of two common assault offences against Mary Jones on December 28, 2021.

He was also accused of damaging a knife and draining board belonging to Denise Hinds in the town on the same date.

Mr Kingsley pleaded guilty to all three offences at Llandudno Magistrates’ Court on May 10.
