A court has banned a man from entering religious buildings after a string of anti-social behaviour.

Michael Rich, 41 was issued with a Criminal Behaviour Order following work by Kew Police surrounding his "persistent antisocial behaviour in the area."

Conditions imposed prevent him attending any religious building without written permission of staff or to call at private dwellings without permission of the occupier.

"We don't take lightly to people causing anxiety and distress to residents and workers on our ward," police said.

"We are pleased the court acknowledged the impact Michael has been having in Kew. Order in place until 2024."
