Ramsbottom lout jailed for breaching ASBO

First published in

A LOUT has been jailed after urinating in a baby-changing room in front of a woman.

Paul Platt was given an anti-social behaviour order on July 1 after shouting abuse at bus passengers, tram users and shop workers — but he breached it just 17 days later.

Police bailed him but the 28-year-old, of Hillside Road, Ramsbottom, breached the ASBO again on July 28 by harassing people at a golf club.

He is now in prison serving a 26-week sentence.

Platt had been the subject of many complaints after he was verbally aggressive towards shopworkers in Unsworth and Ramsbottom and also towards health workers.

His victims reported him to Bury Council, whose staff asked Platt to sign an acceptable behaviour contract.

Platt agreed, which meant he was willing to change his ways.

But the incidents continued, resulting in Bury magistrates handing him a three-year ASBO on July 1, where he was told not to drink or be drunk in public, swear at or verbally abuse people in public, threaten people in public or misbehave on buses and trams.

But at 12.40pm on July 17, Platt went to the Bury Interchange toilets and urinated in a baby changing room while a woman was leaving the room.

He then tried to block her exit.

Then, at 11am on July 27, he breached it again by going to Whitefield Golf Club in Higher Lane, and threatening members of the public while carrying a glass of beer. He then threw the glass at police.

Platt admitted breaching the ASBO before magistrates.
