The brother of former Celebrity Big Brother contestant and Another Level singer Dane Bowers has been fined following a row at a Butlins nightclub.

Wade Bowers, 31, pleaded guilty to possession of cocaine and three counts of assault by beating in West Sussex.

Last week, Chichester magistrates heard Dane shouted and swore at door staff when Wade was refused re-entry to the club at the Bognor Regis holiday camp.

Dane, 34, was the headline act at a 1990s night on 20 April.

The DJ, from Kingswood Way in Selsdon, South Croydon, pleaded guilty to using threatening or abusive behaviour likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress last week.

He was given a 12-month conditional discharge and ordered to pay £85 costs and a £15 victim surcharge.

A third man, builder Terry Kean, 35, of Limpsfield Road, South Croydon, pleaded guilty to possessing cocaine and the same offence admitted by Dane.

Kean was also given a 12-month conditional discharge and ordered to pay £85 costs for the public order offence. He was fined £50 for the drugs offence and ordered to pay another £85 costs and a £20 victim surcharge.

Wade, also of Kingswood Way, was fined £100 for possession of a Class A drug and ordered to pay £250 costs at a hearing on Tuesday.

The electrician was ordered to pay £150 compensation for each count of assault.
