A 22-year-old Skipton man ignored a police direction ordering him out of the town centre, magistrates heard.

James Thomas Lambert Boyd was given the anti-social behaviour act order on December 23 after police received calls of a man behaving drunkenly in the town centre.

But despite being ordered out of the town, he ignored it and went to the Strata Nightclub where police received further reports of anti-social behaviour outside the Keighley Road club.

Boyd, who admitted knowingly contravening a police direction, told Skipton magistrates that he was very sorry and had not known what he was doing at the time.

Boyd, of Willow Way, was fined £50 and ordered to pay costs of £85 and victims surcharge of £20.
