A MAN was seen pleasuring himself in a Blackburn town centre pub on Friday.

Blackburn magistrates heard the act was witness by customers and a member of staff in the Bees Knees.

And they were told that Harley Whitehead then became aggressive with door staff, throwing a punch at one of them.

Lynn Sayers said; "Staff saw him masturbating in one of the booths. A female member of staff described it as repulsive and disgusting.”

Whitehead, 29, of The Square, Waddington, pleaded guilty to intentionally exposing his genitals and using threatening behaviour.

He was remanded on bail for the preparation of a pre-sentence report.

A condition of bail is that he does not enter the Bees Knees.
