A West Norfolk man has been banned from Covid-19 testing or vaccination centres unless he has an appointment.
Spencer Walker was given the ban known as a Criminal Behaviour Order or CBO after he was abusive towards staff at one of the centres.
The 53-year-old of Charlock in King’s Lynn denied one count of threatening behaviour but was convicted at Peterborough Magistrates Court on 12 May.
Walker appeared in court again on Thursday (7 July) for sentencing where he was fined £850, ordered to pay costs of £720 and a victim surcharge of £85.
The charges related to an incident on Saturday 8 January when Walker went into the vaccination centre on King’s Street. Walker pushed his way in after being told he could only enter if he had an appointment. Once inside, he told staff he was an ‘anti-vaxer’ and shouted at members of the public waiting for appointments, calling them ‘murderers’.
Police were called to the scene and arrested Walker on suspicion of threatening behaviour. He was taken to King’s Lynn Police Investigation Centre and later charged with the offence.
Following conviction, police successfully applied for the. It means he is banned from entering the centres, or taking still or moving images of them, for three years.
