A SOUTHAMPTON man has been banned from contacting a woman for two weeks under a domestic violence court order.

Andrew Stuart Cookson has been given a 14-day domestic violence protection order.

It means that the 25-year-old of Upper Brownhill Way must not contact his victim directly or indirectly.

He is banned from entering West End Road between its junctions with St Francis Avenue and Chalk Hill during this time.

Cookson must not intimidate, harass or pester the woman in any way.

The order was imposed by Portsmouth Magistrates' Court and lasts until 11.59pm on April 13.
