Paul Charlton aka Pigeon Man is due to be sentenced this morning for breaking an order barring him from feeding birds.

Charlton, of no fixed address, is a well-known figure in Bath, often seen under the arches off Stall Street with pigeons perching on him.

However, he was prosecuted in January for the antics despite being subject to a community protection notice ordering him to stop.

It landed him with a criminal behaviour order – which he has since broken on six occasions.

He was first charged with defying the order only seven days after it was made, on January 30, and four more times in February and once in March.

The 42-year-old admitted the offences when he appeared at Bath Magistrates’ Court on September 25.

His hearing was adjourned so a pre-sentence report could be prepared by the probation service.

Charlton is due back in courtroom 1 for sentencing this morning (Wednesday, October 18).
