A MAN who was banned from Oxford Station for harassing travellers over the past ten years has breached the order after just one month.

Scott Hadlow was slapped with a Criminal Behaviour Order on January 24 after a campaign of abuse in which he spat at, kicked and assaulted passengers and even threatened to stab them with dirty needles.

The 39-year old of no fixed abode became the first person to be banned from the station and was jailed for 10 weeks last month.

He was also banned from Oxford city centre and from sitting within 10 metres of a cash machine anywhere within the ring road.


At the time British Transport Police officer Matthew Autery, who is based at the station, hailed the order as a significant step in stamping out the years of offending.

Now, Hadlow has again been hauled before the courts and at Oxford Magistrates’ Court on March 6 he admitted breaching the order by visiting the rail station between 7am and 7pm on March 5.

He was fined £50 for the offence and ordered to pay a victim surcharge of £30.

He remains subject to the original Criminal Behaviour Order.
