The bench told him that he was getting an immediate six-week jailed sentence “because the offence was aggravated by being committed whilst on bail, because your behaviour was intimidating and threatening to staff members doing no more than their jobs.

“In short your conduct was appalling and your record shows that you continue to repeat this anti-social behaviour on a regular and frequent basis. You have also offended whilst subject to post sentence supervision and it is clear from the probation report that you have treated their staff with the same disregard as you treat the general public.”

Anderton was ordered to pay £128 towards victim services.

Beard has yet to plead and, due to the Covid-19 restrictions the bench adjourned the case to at least August
