A man has admitted throwing a brick through the window of a pizza restaurant - twice.

Sussex Police issued an appeal in March after a man was seen hurling the brick through the window of Fatto A Mano in London Road, Brighton, at 3.30am on February 21, and again at just before midnight on February 28.

He did not go inside or take anything from the restaurant.

Police were then called to M&S Food Hall at the South Terminal of Gatwick Airport at 9pm on April 28 following a report of theft.

Officers arrested James Jones, 37, of no fixed address, who was later charged with theft from the store, failing to comply with a prohibition notice as well as the two counts of criminal damage.

Jones admitted to all four charges when he appeared at Crawley Magistrates’ Court on April 30.

He has been released on conditional bail and is due to be sentenced on June 21 at Brighton Magistrates’ Court.
