Man admits threatening medics

A man who threatened to slit the throats of paramedics after being found 'incredibly' drunk will be sentenced next month.

Kyle John Mcgeown of Castle Street in Peel admitted using provoking behaviour when he appeared before Deputy High Bailiff Jayne Hughes this week.

The court heard he'd dialled 999 saying he'd fallen over but didn't know where he was shortly before 11pm on Thursday, October 5 - but when police and an ambulance crew found him in Colby, he became abusive, swearing and struggling.

Mrs Hughes heard at the time he was serving a suspended jail sentence for previous offences.

She bailed him to appear again on November 21.
