A registered sex offender from Wisbech appeared before magistrates facing 11 charges of breaching a court order.

The charges include the suspicion that Durrant broke the terms a Sexual Harm Prevention Order (SHPO).

He was charged with five counts of breaching a SHPO and six counts of not following notification requirements of being on the Sex Offenders Register.

He was remanded in custody and appeared before magistrates at Cambridge Magistrates’ Court on August 25.
