Judge tells man told to 'go down south'

September 28th 2009
A homeless man caught in breach of his anti-social behaviour order (Asbo) has been told to move out of East Yorkshire and "go down south", a local newspaper has reported.

The Beverly Local reported at the beginning of May that John Bernard Martindale, known locally as Bernie, had been told to move south on his release from prison. He had been caught drinking alcohol in public, having been released from a jail sentence imposed at Hull Crown Court in February for another breach of his ASBO in January. It was his eighth breach of the court order.

East Riding Judge Michael Mettyear told him to "go down south when you get out and leave us alone up here," as he sentenced the man to three months in prison. When he was jailed in February, Martindale had said he intended to move south and stay with family there.
