A HEREFORDSHIRE man who made grossly offensive 999 calls has been locked up after committing another offence just two days after his previous court hearing.

Martin Glover entered guilty pleas when he appeared before magistrates in Hereford.

The court heard the 61-year-old had failed to comply with the terms of a community protection notice on January 10, calling the emergency services when it was not a genuine emergency.

Glover admitted committing a further offence while subject to a six-month conditional discharge imposed by magistrates on August 16 after he admitted using threatening or abusive words or behaviour.

He also admitted committing a further offence during the operational period of a suspended sentence order, imposed two days earlier on January 8 after he was convicted of making indecent or grossly offensive calls to 999.

Glover, of Church Street, Ledbury, was fined a total of £100 for failing to comply with his community protection notice and breaching the terms of his conditional discharge, and his six-week suspended sentence was activated.
