A homeless man has been arrested on suspicion of begging just days after magistrates banned him from doing so anywhere in the country.

James Philip Waxman (33), of no fixed address, is due before Grantham magistrates today charged with begging and breaching an ASBO (Anti-social Behaviour Order) imposed by Boston magistrates on Wednesday.

Waxman was given the ASBO when he was sentenced for causing a public nuisance by begging in Spalding which meant he was not allowed to beg or be ready to beg in any public place in England and Wales indefinitely.
