A DRUNKEN vagrant who has plagued Wisbech with his anti-social behaviour had an appeal against his anti-social behaviour order (Asbo) quashed after failing to attend the hearing.

Aleksandras Liesys, 43, of no fixed abode, was made the subject of the order at King’s Lynn Magistrates’ Court in November for three years.

On Friday, at Norwich Crown Court, Liesys attempted to have the order lifted but the appeal was heard in his absence and was dismissed by judges.

He is banned from entering Wisbech town centre between 8am and 8pm, drinking in areas covered by the designated public places order and swearing or making abusive gestures.

He is also not allowed to enter Norfolk Stret and the Lloyds TSB in North Brink.

Sergeant Dave Bax said: “Liesys is a persistent offender and a nuisance to people living in the town.

“We will continue to enforce this order and would ask for the community’s help by reporting any sightings to police by calling 101.”
