A man has been banned from entering the centre of Huntingdon after police obtained a court order against him.

Matthew Shaw, 33, has been issued with a Criminal Behaviour Order (CBO) meaning he cannot enter Huntingdon town centre, identified by the ring road.

Exceptions to the order, according to police, include being able to visit Potter Shelley Solicitors, CGL (Inclusion), Vision Express, Huntingdon Library and BID Huntingdon.

A spokesman for police said: “Other conditions of the order include not going to St Neots, not entering any Huntingdon Business Against Crime approved store, as well as not going to Aldi in Huntingdon or the Co-Op in Godmanchester.”

The order expires on November 5, 2020. The order was obtained as a result of “persistent offending” by Shaw.

The police spokesman added: “Any breach of this order is a criminal offence and should be reported by calling 101.”
