Windsor Castle trespasser banned from UK pubs

A man has been banned from drinking in UK pubs for a year after admitting trespassing within the grounds of Windsor Castle.

Robert Pennefather, from County Tipperary in Ireland, was arrested in the grounds of Royal residence by the police in the early hours of November 6, last year.

The Queen was not in residence at the time.

He was given a 14-day prison sentence suspended for 12 months after pleading guilty to the single charge at London's Westminster Magistrates' Court today.

He has also been banned from entering any licensed premises in the UK for 12 months, fined £1,000 and ordered to pay £85 in costs and a £15 victim surcharge.

Windsor Castle - the largest and oldest occupied castle in the world - is deemed a designated site.

Trespassing on such a site is considered an offence under the Serious Organised Crime and Police Act 2005.
