A MAN must pay compensation after headbutting two windows.

Paul Mason smashed the glass in West Stockwell Street, Colchester, in the early hours of New Year's Day.

The 29-year-old admitted the charges at Colchester Magistrates' Court.

Mason, of Ball Alley, Colchester, must pay £240 in compensation but faces no other penalty.

The case should have been heard last month when Mason was in court and handed an 11 week jail term for a series of offences but there was an administrative error.
