A THUG admitted attacking a paramedic and making threats at a hospital.

Justin Manville, 49, had gone to Eastbourne District General Hospital in August last year.

He assaulted paramedic Neil Bustin.

Manville appeared before Hastings Magistrates’ Court, where he admitted the assault.

He also admitted using abusive or threatening behaviour.

The court was also told that he admitted criminal damage to a woman’s jewellery, make-up and mobile phone during a separate incident.

He stole a set of keys and her bank card, which he then used to make purchases worth £48.72 and £26.70.

Manville, of Bourne Street, Eastbourne, was ordered to complete 35 rehabilitation sessions and to pay £75 compensation. He must also pay a £90 surcharge and £85 costs.
