A man has been banned from one part of Merseyside following allegations of anti-social behaviour.

Peter Hill, of no fixed abode, was previously given a Criminal Behaviour Order, however this was amended at Liverpool Crown Court earlier this week following recent allegations of anti-social and criminal behaviour in Prenton, Wirral.

The allegations include theft and being abusive towards staff and customers in local shops. The CBO stipulates the 37-year-old can’t enter an area of Prenton, which is bounded by and included Woodchurch Road, Storeton Road and Holm Lane.

The order will run until June 29, 2029.

Hill, who is currently in prison, "kicked off" while appearing at Wirral Magistrates Court, assaulting and threatening custody officers as well as causing criminal damage. The ECHO previously reported that Hill appeared before the court for separate offences on November 9 before he was was charged with three counts of assaulting an emergency worker, criminal damage, affray and two counts of threatening to destroy or damage property.

He was also charged with two additional counts of assaulting an emergency worker following a separate incident on Friday, January 5.

Appearing at Liverpool Crown Court on Monday, February 5, prosecuting counsel Mr Callum Ross said Hill had appeared before the court on November 9 for another incident but while being taken to the court room he "lost his temper" and became "abusive".

He "shouted and kicked a metal gate" before pushing one custody officer. The court heard how he then picked up a wooden table and threw it at the custody officers before pulling up a bench from the floor, which had been bolted down and threw that at the two custody officers.

Mr Ross added Hill had kicked one officer to the stomach and the other to his groin before spitting and punching. The court heard how he told one custody officer he would "burn his house down and rape his wife and daughter". He then told the other custody officer he would "burn your house down with your family inside".

Judge Recorder Harrington sentenced Hill to a total of 16 months in custody for all offences, of which he will serve half.

Neighbourhood policing Inspector Nicola Hughes said: “Antisocial behaviour and criminality causes misery for members of our community wishing to go about their daily business and business owners simply wanting to make a living.

“The neighbourhood policing team will continue to seek similar orders against those who seek to cause harm to our communities. Criminal Behaviour Orders are extremely effective and should Hill breach the conditions of this order, he will be arrested, returned to court and may be jailed.

“I would actively encourage any members of the public who witness Hill breaching his CBO or committing offences to report this to Merseyside Police to contact @MerPOlCC or call 101.”
