IPSWICH: Two friends seen fighting each other outside a kebab shop during a drunken night out are a total of �360 poorer today.

Carl Harris, of Landseer Road, and Stefan Chalmers, of Alan Road, pleaded guilty to disorderly behaviour when they shared the dock at South East Suffolk Magistrates' Court in Ipswich.

Prosecutor Lesla Small said police were called to Felixstowe Road on September 10 by a member of the public who had seen two men fighting in the street.

When officers arrived the fight had finished, but Harris and Chalmers, both 20, were arrested.

Harris told the court: "We had a little fight and the next day we just made up.

"We don't know why we did it. We were just drunk. It was a stupid thing to do."

Chalmers added: "I apologise for my actions. We were drunk and that's what it boils down to."

Magistrates fined Harris and Chalmers �80 each. They were also each told to pay a �15 victim surcharge and �85 costs.
