Have your say

A MAN has appeared in court after breaching a restraining order.

Gavin Covington admitted breaching the order by contacting a woman on March 25 in Petersfield.

The 38-year-old, of Centenary Gardens, Havant, was fined £50 by Portsmouth magistrates.

He must pay a £20 victim surcharge and £85 prosecution costs.

Magistrates ordered he be detained in court but this was deemed spent.
