Jones has been given a criminal behaviour order (CBO) restricting him from drinking alcohol in a public place other than a licenced premises and from being in possession of any opened vessel containing alcohol in a public place.

Sgt Donna Wiseman, from the Operational Partnership Team in west Norfolk, said: “It is important that we use all the options available to us when dealing with prolific offenders.

"The use of CBOs shows that we and our partners will not allow people to continue offending when their behaviour results in significant harm to the public.”
