A DAD has been fined in court after shouting abuse at Vision Express staff in a row over his daughter’s contact lenses.

Barry Dilworth, of Brambling Way, Lowton, screamed at an optometrist at the store in Golden Square as he was unhappy at the service.

The 52-year-old then burst into a consultation room to confront the optometrist, who had gone to see another customer, and demanded an apology.

Two female employees were reduced to tears by the rant, which happened at 2.40pm on April 6, this year.

Cheshire Police were called and Dilworth was visited at home by PC Graham Davies, of Warrington Town Centre NPU.

He was summoned to Halton Magistrates Court last month, when he pleaded guilty to threatening behaviour.

The defendant was told to pay £565 in fines, costs and compensation.
