Men Banned from Pubs and Clubs

Two men have been banned from Yarmouth’s pubs and clubs for two years. 

Daniel Wicks, 35, of Birch Way, Gorleston and Shane Shanahan, 26, of Somerville Avenue, Gorleston received the ban when they appeared at Great Yarmouth Magistrates Court yesterday, Monday 4 April.


The men were both found guilty of assault and causing harassment, alarm and distress in relation to the same incident that took place last August when a fight broke out at a licensed premises on King Street, Great Yarmouth. 


Wicks pleaded guilty to an additional charge of assault relating to a separate incident that took place in September last year where he attacked a 38 year old man in a licensed premises on Marine Parade. He was sentenced to 160 days imprisonment and made subject of a Criminal Anti-Social Behaviour Order (Crasbo) for two years.


Shanahan was sentenced to 120 days imprisonment, suspended for 18 months, ordered to carry out 200 hours of unpaid work and pay compensation and costs totalling £600.He was also made subject of a two year Crasbo.

The Crasbos, which were made on conviction after magistrates heard about other recent anti-social behaviour incidents in which they were involved, ban Shanahan and Wicks from entering any on license premises in the Great Yarmouth Borough for the two year period they are in place. 


Chief Inspector Stuart Armes said: “We hope that these results reassure the public that disorder and violence in and around licensed premises will not be tolerated.


The courts have sent a clear message that this type of behaviour is unacceptable and we will continue to work in partnership with local licensed premises to support this and tackle incidents such as these robustly.”
