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 breached it 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.

But the incidents continued, resulting in Bury magistrates handing him a three-year ASBO on July 1.

On July 17, Platt went to the Bury Interchange toilets and urinated in a baby changing room.

On July 27, he threatened people at Whitefield Golf Club in Higher Lane then threw a beer glass at police.

Platt admitted breaching the ASBO.
