A homeless man, described by Cambridgeshire Police as 'a nuisance', has been given an ASBO and banned from Wisbech town centre.

43 year old Aleksandras Liesys [pictured - right] was given the anti-social behaviour order at King's Lynn Magistrates Court last Thursday (15 November).

He was already the subject of a temporary order.

PC Adam Pearce said: "Liesys is a persistent offender and a nuisance to people living in the town.

Despite the best efforts of a number of agencies he has chosen to be a drunken vagrant.

People should be able to go out in Wisbech without seeing drunken and disorderly behaviour and I hope this order helps us achieve that."

The order bans him from:

  • Entering Wisbech town centre between 8am and 8pm.
  • Having an open container of alcohol in a public place in the area covered by the designated public places order (DPPO), unless in a licensed premises.
  • Being drunk in any public place in the DPPO area.
  • Swearing or making abusive or threatening comments or gestures in Wisbech.
  • Entering or remaining in Norfolk Street, Norwich Street and the Lloyds TSB in North Brink.

If he breaches the two-year order, he faces up to five years in prison.
