MAGISTRATES have refused to relax Mark Brown's curfew order, so he can attend his grandparents' golden wedding anniversary party.

Twenty-eight-year-old Brown was given a six-month curfew back in July for an offence of possessing cocaine - and under the order he has to stay at home every night between 8pm and 6am.
