A 45-year-old man has been given a two year criminal behaviour order following repeated drunk and disorderly behaviour in Thetford.

David Dixey, from the Thetford area, was charged with being drunk and disorderly in a public place following an incident in Kings Street on Wednesday, August 3 2016.

He was sentenced at Ipswich Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday and given a suspended sentence and a criminal behaviour order.

Six offences have taken place in Thetford since May 2016.

The provisions set out in the criminal behaviour order state that Dixey must not be drunk in a public place or have an open or opened container of alcohol in a public place.

He is also banned from entering King Street, in Thetford, and entering the grounds of St Cuthbert’s Church, in Thetford.
