AN ACCUSED man has been banned from Hereford's Morrisons supermarket after denying committing a public order offence.

Simon Bailey appeared before magistrates in Hereford in March accused of one count of using threatening or abusive words or behaviour likely to cause harassment, alarm, or distress.

Hereford Times:

The court heard from prosecutor Eleanor Peart that the 58-year-old is accused of having used threatening, abusive, or disorderly behaviour within the sight or hearing of a person likely to be caused harassment, alarm, or distress at Hereford's Morrisons supermarket on December 15.


Bailey, who was not represented by a solicitor at the hearing, entered a not guilty plea to the charge.

The case was sent for trial and Bailey, of Barrs Orchard in Tarrington, Herefordshire, was released on bail with a condition not to enter Hereford's Morrisons supermarket or its car park.

He will appear before magistrates in Hereford for trial on April 27.
