Sergeant Becky Jones said: “This is the result of a lot of hard work. She was causing significant issues in St Ives town centre and incidents were being reported to us on a daily basis.

“It is very important that residents help us to enforce this order by informing us about any breaches.

“I hope it sends out a strong, clear message that we will not tolerate anti-social behaviour.”

INFORMATION: Anyone who sees Warcup breaching the order should call police on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
