Carlisle man banned from going near partner

A man who assaulted his partner has been banned from going near her by magistrates in Carlisle.

The restraining order against David Gerard Ferguson, 41, of Buchanan Place, Currock, means he cannot go back to the house he shared with victim Deborah Cowx because she still lives there.

Ferguson admitted assault when he appeared at Carlisle Magistrates Court.

Adrienne Harris, prosecuting, told the court Ferguson had been physically abusive in the past to Ms Cowx. On October 21 it was agreed that he would go into town to order groceries and that she would get out of bed when the groceries were delivered to the house on Lediard Avenue, Currock.

However, when Ferguson arrived home he found the groceries had been delivered to another house because she hadn’t got out of bed.

Mrs Harris said he became abusive and threw a number of CDs at the television, then began to push her in the chest. A neighbour telephoned the police because of the noise.

Martin McAlistair, defen-ding, said Ferguson has been “plagued by alcohol addiction”.

Magistrates placed Ferguson on a community order with supervision for one year.

How far would you go to look at a bird?

Very far. Excited when rare birds set up home here

I watch birds through the window and on TV. That's all

Birdwatching doesn't appeal to me. I'd go a long way to avoid a gull though
