Police say that they successfully secured the order against 59-year-old Donald Mardell.

Officers say that the order - which will remain in place for two years - was obtained on October 22 after Mardell caused antisocial behaviour in the town towards businesses, residents and members of the public over an extended period of time.

It comes with a number of conditions aimed at preventing further offending and to provide reassurance to the community, say police.

“Alongside other partner agencies, we are working with Mardell to support him and address the causes of his behaviour.”
