A MAN has been fined for obstructing a police officer.

Frank Callard, 33, of Linklater Path, Portsmouth, admitted obstructing PC Melanie Biggs in the execution of her duty in Longs Walk, Landport, Portsmouth.

He was fined £200 and told to pay £85 costs and £15 to crime victims by Fareham magistrates. A charge of assaulting a woman in Longs Walk on November 27, which Callard denied, was dropped.
