Police have been granted a three year criminal behaviour order banning a man from Blackburn Cathedral, The Mall and all Lancashire branches of Morrisons’ supermarkets.
Daniel Leah, 24 formerly of Addison Street, Blackburn was convicted at Blackburn Magistrates Court on the 12th of November of a public order offence and given the Criminal Behaviour Order.
The Order prohibits him from entering any of Morrisons’ stores or any car parking facilities owned by them in Lancashire.
He is also no longer allowed to enter any part of Blackburn Cathedral or the Cathedral grounds or enter any part of Blackburn Mall, including any shops or stalls attached to it on King William Street, Ainsworth Street, Church Street and Northgate, including Blackburn market and all adjoining mall car parking or service areas.
“Leah has been a regular offender and a constant menace within the town centre disrupting the quality of life and causing much annoyance and upset for our local community partners and visitors, in particular, in and around Morrisons, the Mall and the Cathedral.
“I hope this will go some way to help reassure people that we will not tolerate anti-social behaviour and anyone who gets involved in such behaviour will be dealt with.”
