MAN was ordered not to be drunk and disorderly in a public place.

Roy Webb,  53, of Llanvair Road, Newport, has been issued with an interim anti-social behaviour order which prevents him from engaging in a range of offensive conduct.

The court heard Webb had allegedly been seen drinking in the city centre.

The order stops him from, among other things, swearing in public, emptying his colostomy bag in any public place and urinating in a public place.

The order was granted by magistrates at Caerphilly Magistrates Court in Webb's absence. It runs until a later hearing where a final anti-social behaviour order will be considered.

Newport council prosecuting solicitor Nicola Willis told the court Mr Webb's anti-social behaviour allegedly included being drunk and disorderly in public.

It also allegedly involved emptying a colostomy bag in public on several occasions, once throwing it in a shop.

Magistrates were told of an incident on July 17 where he was seen drinking in the city centre, and another on July 25 when he was seen with another man who had poured white cider into two cups.

Chair of the bench Christopher Woodhouse said they were not determining matters of fact at the hearing.

But he added: "We have a duty to undertake a balancing exercise between protecting the public and the impact on the individual."

A full anti-social behaviour application will be considered at a hearing at Abergavenny Magistrates Court on August 17.

  ROY Webb's order, granted at Caerphilly Magistrates Court following an application from Newport City Council , prevents him from:

  • Being in possession of alcohol in open bottles, cans, cups or containers in a public place Act in a drunk and disorderly manner in a public place
  • Urinate in any public place other than in a public toilet Empty his colostomy bag in any public place
  • Shout or use foul or obscene language in public
  • Engaging in conduct which causes or is likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress to any person, or inciting others to do so, in England and Wales.
