Treorchy pub wrecking spree caught on CCTV

A sacked bus driver wrecked a pub by throwing chairs, tables and bottles after erupting into angry rage over losing his job, a court heard.

Martin Lewis, 56, caused £9,000 worth of damage at the Stag pub in Treorchy, Rhondda Cynon Taff.

He also caused £12,000 in damage at his local Jobcentre days later over delays to benefits payments, Merthyr Tydfil Crown Court was told.

Lewis, of Treorchy, was jailed for 18 months after admitting criminal damage.
