A MAN who turned up at his ex-partner's home delivered a letter to his daughter apologising for being a bad dad. Blackburn magistrates heard the visit put Mark Edward Haworth in breach of a non-molestation order even though there was no contact with his former partner. Haworth, 21, of Brush Street, Burnley, pleaded guilty to breaching the order. He was made subject to a community order for 12 months with 15 days rehabilitation activity requirement and 40 hours unpaid work. He was ordered to pay £85 costs and £85 victim surcharge. Tracy Yates, prosecuting, said when Haworth knocked on the door it was answered by a third party. He handed over the letter and then left. Richard Prew, defending, said his client had no previous convictions. "He didn't see his former partner and simply handed over the letter," said Mr Prew.
