AN 18-YEAR-old man from Whitchurch has been banned from two major retailers in town over his 'unacceptable' behaviour.

Archie Kettle, 18, of Tilstock was given the Criminal Behaviour Order (CBO) at Telford Magistrates' Court, which will be in place for five years.


In the order it is stated that he must not enter Home Bargains or Sainsbury’s in Whitchurch.

West Mercia Police posted on Facebook: “To comply with the order, Kettle must not act in an aggressive or threatening manner, must not throw anything at any person or property without reasonable excuse, and he must not enter Home Bargains or Sainsbury's in Whitchurch.”

The order also commands that he must leave a premises if told to do so by a member of uniformed staff.

Inspector Greenaway-Evans said "The behaviour shown by Kettle over a period of time has been unacceptable and has impacted a lot of people.

“I am glad that the court has issued this order which I hope will curb Kettle's behaviour.

“The order will help us to protect the people of Whitchurch."
