Main article content
A man described as a “prolific nuisance” has received an interim Civil Injunction order following his alleged involvement in a number of incidents.
Daniel Cook, aged 42 and of no fixed abode, was served with the 12-month-long injunction following a hearing at Cheltenham and Gloucester County Court yesterday (Thursday 25 May).
The case was brought against Cook by Solace, a joint team of officers from Gloucestershire Constabulary, Cheltenham Borough Council and Gloucester City Council following numerous reports of incidents involving Cook in the Winchcombe area.
The order imposed by the courts forbids him from:
Engaging in conduct which causes or is capable of causing harassment or alarm or distress to any person within the boundary of Winchcombe
Using or threatening to use violence against anyone within the boundary of Winchcombe.
Shouting at, swearing at, using abusive language or making rude or insulting gestures against any person in the boundary of Winchcombe.

Inspector Grant White from the Tewkesbury Neighbourhood Policing Team said: "Cook was causing considerable issues and upset for the residents, schools and businesses of Winchcombe with anti-social behaviour.
"This was causing fear in the local community and being raised as a community concern on a regular basis so I hope the injunction will stop his actions."
Anyone who sees Cook breaching his injunction can report this by calling police on 101 or the Solace team on 01452 396396.
