Albert Hamill

A 54-year-old man will see his face plastered across shops and businesses windows in Ribbleton, Fulwood and Brookfield.


Albert Hamill is now banned from drinking alcohol in public after being handed a three year ASBO.

The banning order covers Fulwood, Brookfield and Ribbleton.

He is also banned from the grounds of Royal Preston Hospital.

Hamill, of no fixed address, was continually drunk, offensive and aggressive towards the public and members of staff at the emergency services.

PC Paul Geldard said: “We’ll be handing out 100 posters to shops and businesses in these areas to make them aware of the conditions which have been placed on Hamill.

“Over the past year he’s blighted the lives of people living in Ribbleton in particular and I believe this ASBO will protect them from further acts of anti-social behaviour.

“This should send a clear message that we treat anti-social behaviour seriously and we will take action where it’s needed.”

To report a breach of an ASBO call the police on 101.
