Norwich Magistrates' Court.

A 49-year-old man has been banned from Sheringham for two years after a string of alcohol related anti-social behaviour offences.

Roger Edge, of no fixed abode, was made the subject of a Conviction Related Anti-Social Behaviour Order (CRASBO) by Norwich magistrates, when he appeared in court on Tuesday.

Police asked that he be slapped with the CRASBO when he appeared in court in relation to a series of alcohol related anti-social behaviour incidents over the past year, such as being publicly abusive.

Under the order Edge is banned from the parish of Sheringham for the next 24 months. He was also made subject to a six month alcohol treatment order.

The CRASBO means that if he is caught in the town, he may face prosecution that could lead to up to five years in prison.

Sergeant Tim Chapman, of the North Norfolk Operational Partnership Team, said: 'Mr Edge has been prolific in reports of anti-social behaviour made to the partnership. These have almost always involved alcohol fuelled behaviour and were often in the main public spaces of Sheringham town.

'As a partnership we have worked tirelessly to support the local beat manager PC Ian Smith, and the local community to tackle a core group of street drinkers blighting Sheringham town centre, and have actively targeted these individuals with a range of interventions and solutions.'

'We did not take the decision to implement this CRASBO lightly, but in the case of Mr Edge all the lower forms of interventions had been exhausted and this was the most appropriate way to prevent any further harm being caused to the people of Sheringham.

'I would hope now that Mr Edge engages positively with the support he is offered.'
