The estranged father of One Direction star Louis Tomlinson was found drunk in a Doncaster park after contemplating suicide, a court has heard.

Troy Austin (46) appeared before Doncaster Magistrates Court charged with failing to provide a breath test while being in charge of a car.

He was found by police in Cantley Park, Doncaster, on August 18 standing next to a car he had reportedly borrowed.

He had drunk alcohol to "build up the courage to kill himself", prosecutor Joanne Lewis-Crooks said.

Chairman of the bench Stuart Highfield gave Austin 10 points on his licence and he was ordered to pay £85 costs, a £15 victim surcharge and £150 criminal courts charge.
