  • "I knew Peter from his time visiting the Maggs Centre in Deansway, he needs HELP, not being criminalised and locked up. He had difficult days, but mostly, I found him sociable and considerate. It is very easy for those of us with jobs, nice homes and supportive families to judge people like Peter. I hope he can get help.

    Our government and society seem to have abandoned those in need and with problems because the "market" doesn't want them.

    You can measure the morality of a society by how the highest treat the lowest. Before some of those who write here call me a "do-gooder," they should ask themselves what is wrong in doing good?"

A HOMELESS man has been jailed for breaching an order preventing him from entering parts of Worcester.

Peter Swinbourne was sentenced to 16 weeks in prison on Monday, August 25 after he breached a Criminal Anti-Social Behaviour Order (CRASBO) by acting in a threatening and abusive manner in the Deansway area of Worcester.

The court heard the 42-year-old had also breached the order on Wednesday, August 20 and two days later by being within the area he was banned from entering and by making threats, acting aggressively and swearing.

Community Harm Co-Ordinator at West Mercia Police Jenny Willems said: “By proactively enforcing the CRASBO’s against Swinbourne, we have shown that his actions are not acceptable and have a negative impact on society.

“It is hoped that the time away will help him to reflect and look to turn his life around.”
