And finally… on your bike

A man who cycled to a probation meeting in defiance of a court-ordered cycling ban has been jailed.

Jake Carter, 27, twice breached a criminal behaviour order within days of its imposition by an Essex court last November, the BBC reports.

Police said he “demonstrated a complete lack of respect” after he was seen cycling to an appointment with the Probation Service.

The cycling ban was imposed by Chelmsford Magistrates’ Court after it heard he had assaulted women after cycling up to them.

Sgt Graham Thomas, of Essex Police, said: “This order was given to keep the wider public safe from Carter’s actions and limit his ability to cause further distress to the public.”

Carter admitted breaching the order and was jailed for 11 months.
