Have your say

THIS man has been banned from going to a hospital or calling an ambulance or police – unless it is a real emergency – following a string of hoaxes.

Graham Pink has been ordered to stay away from St Richard’s Hospital in Spitalfield Lane, Chichester, for two years for repeatedly faking illnesses and wasting the valuable time of medics.

Terms of an anti-social behaviour order imposed on the 54-year-old, of Stoneage Close, Bognor Regis, mean he is now only allowed to visit the hospital if it is a genuine emergency or for a pre-arranged outpatients appointment.

He is also banned from behaving in a manner which causes someone to call an ambulance for him unless it is a genuine emergency.

And Pink must not cause alarm or distress to people in any public place in Bognor or Chichester by feigning serious injury or illness or ‘wailing without good cause’.

The anti-social behaviour order, imposed by magistrates in Worthing, will remain in force until June 20, 2013.

If Pink is caught breaching the order in the period he could face jail.
