A MAN accused of ignoring a policeman's order to leave Market Street in Ely has been banned from part of the city centre as a condition of bail.

Robert Seymour has been charged under the Violent Crime Reduction Act of 2006, with an allegation that he failed to comply with a direction given by a policeman in uniform, to leave Market Street and stay away for 48 hours.

That charge alleges that the constable believed Seymour's presence in the street was likely to cause or contribute to the repetition or continuance of alcohol related crime or disorder.

Seymour, 37, of Merlin Drive, Ely, is also charged with using threatening behaviour in the city on June 16.

On Thursday the court adjourned the case for seven days. They banned Seymour from entering Market Street, unless he was keeping an appointment with the Jobcentre; and ordered him to keep out of the High Street unless making his daily visit to a chemist.
