A STRATFORD man has been issued with a criminal behaviour order after persistent begging in the town.
Rickey Cooper of Masons Road, received the order at Leamington Magistrates’ Court on Thursday (April 6).
The order will last for two years and prevents the 38 year-old from entering Stratford town centre and the Maybird Centre Shopping Park.
It also means he cannot sit on the pavement in Stratford so people think he is begging or approach people he does not know to ask for money.
If he breaches the order police say he could be arrested.
