A Hastings man has been jailed for 14 weeks and issued with a Criminal Behaviour Order after admitting several offences, including the use of threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour.

Hastings magistrates heard on Monday (3 December) that some of the offences were racially aggravated.

Before them was Douglas Edward White, 49, unemployed, of Croft Road, Hastings.

In addition to the prison sentence, the CBO against White prohibits him from entering or attempting to enter Kenilworth Road and Rothesay Road, St Leonards-on-Sea, until further notice.

It also prohibits him from contacting NHS Direct or the emergency services unless in genuine need of immediate help.

White was told he must also pay a victim surcharge of £115 and £85 prosecution costs.
