A WEST Cumbrian man has had a restraining order imposed after he admitted using threatening behaviour.

Peter Chambers, 40, of South View Road, Whitehaven, appeared at the magistrates’ court in Workington on Monday.

The court heard that on February 5 he used "threatening or abusive behaviour within the hearing or sight of someone likely to be caused harassment, alarm or distress as a result".

In a separate incident on January 18, Chambers was also found driving along Bransty Road in Whitehaven with cannabis in his system.

Magistrates were told Chambers had more than 10 mcg of Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol per litre of blood.

Chambers was handed a fine of £40 and was handed a restraining order by magistrates.

The order prevents him from contacting Sharon Brew.

It also also bans him from attending Whiteline Taxis at Sneckyeat Industrial Estate in Hensingham.

For the drug-driving offence, he was banned from the roads for two years and must abide by a four-week curfew, from 7pm to 7am.

He was also ordered to pay £90 surcharge to fund victim services and £85 court costs.
