District Judge Tessa Szagun handed him a 12-week suspended sentence for his latest three offences.

She also banned him from Brighton city centre and from the railway station as part of a criminal behaviour order.

He must also work with the St Mungo’s homeless charity.

Police said Denyer, of Susans Road, Eastbourne, has had a “detrimental impact on businesses, staff, and the community” in the city centre. PC Rich

Hall said: “Denyer has continued to be a nuisance to the community. He agreed himself when he appeared in court that his behaviour was unacceptable.”

“We want to assure the public that we will continue to use anti-social behaviour legislation, as well as criminal powers, to ensure that offenders not only answer for their criminal behaviour, but that they are subject to ongoing restrictions, in order to provide a respite to individuals, businesses or communities.”
