A 21-year-old man received a suspended jail term and he and a second man were told to attend a “managing aggression workbook” after a rumpus at Colwyn Bay railway station. 
Nathan Taylor, of no fixed address, admitted affray at the station in May and common assault on another young man who he punched at Llandudno in March. 

Magistrates at Llandudno imposed a 26 weeks suspended jail term with two years supervision, £150 compensation to the assault victim, a restraining order banning Taylor from approaching him for two years, and £80 victims’ surcharge. 
Court chairwoman Daphne Swale told him :”You have a previous record for violent behaviour.” 

Chad Clemson, aged 23, of Vicarage Lane, Rhuddlan, admitted affray and received a twelve months community order with “workbooks” and £60 surcharge.

Gemma Hart, aged 21, of Lindum Close, New Brighton, Mold, accused of hurling a beer bottle at Taylor, admitted a public order offence and a year’s supervision was imposed with thinking skills and alcohol misuse workbooks. She, too, must pay a £60 surcharge. 

CCTV footage was shown of trouble which spilled from the forecourt into the booking hall. 

Defence solicitor Richard Williams said Clemson had health problems and Hart suffered from depression. 

Both received state benefits. 

The four young people involved at the station had been friends but words and texts were exchanged about an issue which changed the atmosphere between them. 
Graham Parry, for Taylor, said he had learning disabilities and the main problem was his temper. 

Mr Parry said: ”All the group have certain difficulties in one way or another."
