A TEENAGER who wants to walk his mum down the aisle has been granted a short curfew so he can attend her wedding.

Chesterfield magistrates’ court heard last week how Brad Ward received a three-month curfew for smashing a car windscreen and possessing a blade in an attempt to slash tyres after he had been drinking and believed the owner of the Fiat Brava had mistreated his sister.

His mother is due to get married on December 23 but he would normally be required to stay indoors from 7pm-6am.

However Ward, 19, appeared at court on Wednesday, December 12, and asked for the curfew to be relaxed for the wedding which includes a reception at Shirebrook village hall.

Deputy District Judge Andrew Davison relaxed the curfew, allowing him to stay out until midnight. Ward said he had drunk little since the offences were committed on August 31. Mr Davison varied the curfew to a new address as Ward was moving from Recreation Drive to Park Avenue, Shirebrook.
