A woman banned from parts of West Swindon last week because of nuisance has been jailed for breaching the order twice in four days. The 12 month injunction was issued against 29-year-old Krystal O'Sullivan, of no fixed address, last week.

On Friday, she was arrested in the banned area and was given a six week suspended sentence. She was arrested again the same day. Today at Swindon Crown Court the sentence was activated.

Police have been called to Crawford Close 81 times in the last year, mainly for disturbances involving O’Sullivan and a man at the address.

Sergeant Peter Foster, Wiltshire Police says “it is clear that O’Sullivan has paid little regard to the injunction imposed by the court.. We are pleased that the court has seen fit to activate the custodial sentence and hope that this sends a message to her that this behavior will not be tolerated”.
