A MAN from Andover has been accused of breaching a sexual harm prevention order.

Callum Lee Bates, of Camelot Close, was banned from having contact with a child by Winchester Crown Court in April 2018 after being snared by paedophile hunters.

The 21-year-old, who was 18 at the time, tried to meet a nine-year-old boy at a train station, only for it to be hunters who had posed as someone named ‘Dillon’.

He persuaded the decoy to travel for ‘full sex’ and wore a police uniform to the meeting to impress him.

Now, it has been alleged that Bates tried to make contact with a 13-year-old boy at various locations in Hampshire between September 8 and 11, 2019.

He has indicated a plea of guilty to the single charge.

The case has been adjourned until December 7, for a pre-sentence report to be prepared.

A MAN has been banned from a pub in Andover after he damaged a BMW.

Matthew Graham May, of Landseer Court, was also given a hefty fine after the incident which saw him damage the car, which belonged to Jake Paul Taylor.

The 43-year-old, who admitted the charge at Basingstoke Magistrates’ Court last week, was banned from The Folly in Andover for two years, whilst also being slapped with a £266 fine.

He was also ordered to pay a victim surcharge of £32, and costs of £85.

No compensation was ordered because the prosecution did not make a claim.

A MAN has been disqualified from driving after being found over the drug-drive limit.

Ebrim Bojang, of Dunmow Road, Andover, was found behind the wheel of a vehicle on Newbury Road on June 17, 2019, when over the allowed limit of THC - a cannabinoid - in his blood.

The 30-year-old, who had pleaded not guilty in December, was found guilty after a trial took place in his absence in March.

Being sentenced at Basingstoke Magistrates’ Court last week, the Gambian national was disqualified from driving for a year.

He must also pay a fine of £120 and a victim surcharge of £32, whilst an order to pay costs of £100 to the Crown Prosecution Service was also made.

A MAN will appear in court later this month after being charged with assault.

Daniel James Saxton, of Stiles Drive, denies assaulting the person on August 17, 2019.

He has been remanded on conditional bail.
