Curfew prevents Wisbech man making evening visits to mother in hospital
A SICK woman will be without hospital visitors in the evening, after Fenland magistrates refused to change the terms of her son’s curfew order.
David Kerridge has been visiting his mother every afternoon - but wanted permission to stay out until 9pm so he could make a second daily visit to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King’s Lynn.
Kerridge, 42, of St Paul’s Close, Wisbech, was given the 7pm to 7am curfew last month, when he was re-sentenced for an offence of criminal damage.
He told the court that family circumstances meant he was the only person able to visit his mother, who underwent a biopsy earlier this week.
Turning down his request for extra visiting time, presiding magistrate Margaret Angood said: “You have ample opportunity to visit your mother daily, that is what most people would expect in this situation.”

She said the curfew hours could be re-assessed if the condition of Kerridge’s mother deteriorated.
