Have your say

A YOB who smashed a car windscreen in a drink-fuelled rage has been jailed.

Adam Maskell smashed the window of a parked Volvo, causing £450 of damage, in Victoria Road Southsea, Southsea, on June 15.

The 32-year-old has 20 previous convictions for similar offences, Portsmouth Magistrates’ Court heard.

Maskell, of Waverley Road, Southsea, pleaded guilty to criminal damage.

He was jailed for 60 days.

The owner of the car, Sean Newman, will not get any compensation because unemployed Maskell has no money to pay.
