Following an investigation by Thames Valley Police, a man has been given the first Criminal Behaviour Order in the Thames Valley.

Danny Heap, aged 22, of no fixed abode, was given the Criminal Behaviour Order at Newbury Magistrates’ Court on 18 December 2014.

The order bans Heap from entering any licensed premises associated with Pub Watch in Newbury until 17 December 2016.
The order was made after Heap was arrested on suspicion of being drunk and disorderly in Market Place, Newbury, at about 2.45am on 30 November.
Heap was later charged and pleaded guilty to the offence.
Anti-Social Behaviour Officer for West Berkshire LPA, PC Pete Duffy said: “Heap had previously been given a Pub Watch ban, which he persistently breached and whilst doing so became abusive to members of staff at licensed premises as well as police officers.

“This order is designed to tackle Heap’s anti-social behaviour and address his offending. If he breaches the order it provides the police with the power to arrest him.

“The police and members of the Newbury Pub Watch Scheme will work together to manage this order.”
