2) Go to Chesterfield town centre, as defined on a map by magistrates, except to attend a solicitors or homeless service appointment.

3) Congregate in a public place in a group of two or more people in a manner likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress in the borough of Chesterfield.

4) Remain at any commercial premises or medical establishments within Derbyshire if asked to leave by the owner, occupier or other person acting on behalf of the owner or occupier.

5) Be drunk or consume alcohol in a public place.

Police can arrest Mr Parkes if he is found breaching these conditions. He would be brought before the court and could be sent to prison.

PC Laura East of the Chesterfield Town Safer Neighbourhood Policing Team said: “Mr Parkes has been persistently involved in crime and anti-social behaviour for more than a year.

“Work has been ongoing with partner agencies to encourage Mr Parkes to curb this behaviour, but sadly this has been unsuccessful and he is now facing the consequences of his actions.”

PC East added: “Criminal and anti-social behaviour won’t be tolerated and this successful application is another example of effective partnership work between the police and partner agencies.

“We hope that this will have a positive outcome for members of the community but will also act as a deterrent to others.”

Anyone who witnesses Daniel Parkes breaching the conditions of the CBO can report it to Derbyshire police by calling 101, the non-emergency number, or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
