A homeless man has been slapped with an anti-social behaviour order.
Andrew Bailey, of no fixed abode, has been given a two year ASBO which stops him from begging in the Royal Borough, sitting in any doorway or in any pavement within 10 metres of a cash machine in the Royal Borough and entering an area in Eton outlined on a map.
Sgt Tamara Tatton, from the Inner Windsor neighbourhood team, said: “Bailey has caused misery to the lives of many local people, tourists, and businesses because of his persistent begging.
“I hope the ASBO will help regulate his behaviour, but more importantly the local community can be reassured that we will take robust action against anyone behaving in an anti-social manner.”
Gail Lumsden, Royal Borough anti-social behaviour coordinator, described the order as an 'excellent result'.
She said: "It sends a clear message that anti-social behaviour will not be tolerated."
The ASBO was granted at Slough Magistrates’ Court on August 31.
Bailey was also jailed for 28 days at Slough Magistrates’ Court on Monday for an offence of Fraud by False representation.
He admitted entering Pizza Hut and ordering food and wine without any means to pay on June 28.
An independent report into a Conservative councillor has found a breach of the Royal Borough’s code of conduct in a document seen by the Advertiser.
