Joe Brown, of Crown Place, was given a two year Criminal Behaviour Order by King's Lynn Magistrates after committing the offences in the town between July and December last year.

He was also ordered to pay a total of £522 in victim compensation in addition to court costs, and handed a 12 month conditional discharge.

The provisions set out in the Criminal Behaviour Order state that Brown must not enter any premises where alcohol is sold or consumed within the area bounded by the red line on the map with the exception of Morrisons supermarket, and must not be in possession of any open container of alcohol in a public place within the same area.

He must also enter and abide with a good neighbour contract with Flagship Housing for his home address of Crown Place in Dereham.
