A STREET drinker labelled a “menace” by police has been banned from Wisbech town centre after a string of anti-social incidents.

A STREET drinker labelled a “menace” by police has been banned from Wisbech town centre after a string of anti-social incidents.

Dariusz Palinowski, 51, of Sybil Road, Wisbech, was made the subject of an anti-social behaviour order (Asbo) at King’s Lynn Magistrates’ Court on Thursday.

The court heard he had been found drunk in the town centre on numerous occasions during the past year.

He had been continually warned about his conduct by police officers and security guards but continued drinking in the town, which is a Designated Public Place Order – where drinking alcohol in the street is banned.

Sergeant Dave Bax said: “Palinowski has been a menace in the town centre over the past 12 months, generally upsetting shoppers, staff and visitors with his behaviour.
