David Blastock, aged 29, of John Winter Court has been banned from the area in the map below for breaching his Criminal Behaviour Order – a new type order which was brought in to replace ASBOs.

Officers from the Great Yarmouth Operational Partnership Team (OPT) have been successful in obtaining an amended CBO against a man who breached the conditions of his first.

The order, which was first issued on Monday, February 15, prohibited Blastock from:

• Entering the area of Great Yarmouth, bordered in blue on the map, between the hours of 6pm and 6am;

• Acting in a way that causes or is likely to cause nuisance, annoyance, alarm or distress to anyone not of the same household;

• Recording any persons in a public place or pretend to do any of the above.

The CBO was applied for after Blastock was found guilty on February 15 of being drunk and disorderly in a public place.

Blastock breached this first order on Sunday, May 8 and again on Sunday, July 19. He was found guilty on Monday, August 22 and sentenced to pay a victim surcharge of £85.00 and ordered to carry out unpaid work for 60 hours within the next twelve months. An amendment to the CBO was also granted which now included:

• An extended area as defined in red on the map. This condition also allowed Blastock to enter the area between 11pm and Midnight for the sole purpose of attending the UK Express Kebab Shop in Marine Parade.

• He was also forbidden to make allegations or accusations to emergency services or other agencies against anyone which are false or exaggerated or ask or expect anyone else to do so, on his behalf

• In addition he is not to contact emergency services via the 999, 101 or 111 telephone numbers or ask or expect anyone else to do so on his behalf unless in a genuine emergency.

Police operation:

This successful application forms part of the ongoing good work carried out by the Great Yarmouth Operational Partnership Team.

They have been working in partnership to build evidence against some of the most prolific offenders of Anti-Social Behaviour in the borough.

In the last 12 months, eight Criminal Behaviour Orders have been sought through the Courts and all of them have been granted. As a result, these orders have put restrictions on offenders who have been the cause of a high percentage of criminal offences.

PCSO Hayley Law of the Great Yarmouth OPT said: 'The issuing of these orders has significantly reduced demand on local officers, thus allowing them to deal with real emergency calls and tend to neighbourhood issues. Mr Blastock not only committed regular ASB but would also call emergency services when there was no real emergency. This would often happen several times a day.'

• If you would like to raise concerns of anti-social behaviour the Great Yarmouth Operational Partnership Team can be contacted by calling Norfolk Police on 101.
