A Wisbech man has been banned from begging, rough sleeping, urinating and being aggressive in Fenland after a county court judge granted an injunction sought by Fenland District Council. Michael Bloy, of no fixed abode, has also been banned from loitering or begging at any cash point, service station or supermarket/convenience store across the district.

Peterborough County Court granted the two-year Anti-Social Behaviour Injunction (ASBI) after it heard Bloy had caused significant harassment and distress to others in the local community.

Cllr Susan Wallwork, the council’s portfolio holder for community safety, said: “This judgement sends a very clear message that anti-social behaviour will not be tolerated in our district.”

Loitering or begging (including being seated near to) any cash point, service station or supermarket/convenience store within the council district of Fenland, where the conduct causes or is capable of causing a nuisance, alarm, distress, harassment, violence, injury and annoyance to any person.

Cllr Wallwork said: “Officers have been working together for some months now to address the behaviour of this individual who has caused misery to others.

“As well as helping to manage his behaviour and prevent it from escalating, we hope the injunction will encourage the defendant to accept the help and support he has been offered.”

The court heard Bloy had repeatedly been offered help and support from multiple partner agencies before enforcement action was taken but he had not engaged.

If Bloy breaches any of the terms of the injunction, he will be liable to arrest and could face up to two years in prison. Breaches can be reported by calling 999 in an emergency, or otherwise by calling 101.
