Colin Faulke, 50, of no fixed address, had been accused of going to 75 Broom Road, Worsley Hall, which is the subject of a court ruling that no-one but its occupants should go there due to drug and anti-social activities. In doing so he breached the terms of an 18-week suspended sentence imposed by Wigan magistrates in March for assaulting three people.

The hearing was told Faulke had also failed to adhere to a community element of the suspended sentence by not staying in touch with his supervising officer and failing to inform the officer of a change of address.

The bench therefore activated the suspended term and gave Faulke another four weeks for the closure order breach which will be served consecutively to the first.
