An EGREMONT man was handed a four-month curfew after he admitted threatening a man and obstructing a police officer.

Russell Lee Roberts, 37, of Beck Green, appeared at Workington’s magistrate court on Monday.

The court heard that Roberts used threatening behaviour towards Gareth Sharpe on June 24 in Egremont. Two days later, he obstructed PC Wardle in the town.

Roberts was handed a four-month curfew meaning he must be at his home between 6pm and 6am every day.

He was also ordered to pay a £95 victim surcharge and £85 court costs.
