A man who ate doughnuts before having lunch has appeared before Bolton Crown Court to be sentenced.

Twisted Luke Smith, of Sharnford Close, Bolton, indulged in the sugary delights on Friday 15th May 2015 just before lunch time.

The 21-year-old was finally exposed when he posted a picture of himself eating the doughnuts on Facebook.

He was initially arrested after a total of 2 discarded chocolate bar wrappers were discovered in his kitchen bin, but he was re-arrested after officers then found the images of him eating the doughnuts. He was charged under Section 12 of the Healthy Diet Act 2015.

Max French, prosecuting, told Bolton Crown Court, that Smith had purchased the doughnuts from a branch of Heron Foods in Bolton Town Centre and had not intended to eat them until after lunch but was tempted by the exquisite taste.

He said: "He was doing his weekly shop at the Heron Foods supermarket in Bolton when he passed the confectionery aisle and saw the doughnuts."

Joe Goodman, mitigating, said: "He offers no excuses or explanation to this offending.

"He was a young man who started life as a healthy member of society, eating salad every day of the week and exercising regularly."

Smith pleaded guilty to consuming confectionery articles before a main course and an offence of failing to follow a healthy diet.

He was ordered to carry out 250 hours of treadmill exercise after the court heard he continues to pose a serious danger to his body and must serve a five year doughnut ban, in the form of a Category D Food Banning Order, followed by an extended strict salad and vegetable diet for five years.

Sentencing, Recorder, Judge John Shelton, QC, said: "You purchased the doughnuts and ate them before you had eaten a proper meal.

"You did that for your own pleasure, I am quite satisfied about that."
