If he breaches the two-year order he faces up to five years in prison.

PC Adam Pearce said: “Liesys is a persistent offender and a nuisance to people living in the town.

“Despite the best efforts of a number of agencies he has chosen to be a drunken vagrant.

“People should be able to go out in Wisbech without seeing drunken and disorderly behaviour and I hope this order helps us achieve that.”
