A BRADFORD man has been fined for trespassing at a railway station 85 miles away.

Abel Abraham, 25, of Hall Ings was found guilty in his absence of trespassing in the proximity of a railway or on railway property, at Lincoln Magistrates' Court yesterday.

It was also proved in his absence that Abraham committed an offence of threatening or abusive words or behaviour that was likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress.

The 25-year-old was caught trespassing at Grantham Railway Station, in Lincolnshire on January 5 this year.

It was that same day and in the same location that Abraham used threatening or abusive words or behaviour or disorderly behaviour within the hearing or sight of a person who was likely to have felt harassed, alarmed of distressed by his actions, according to court records.

Abraham was ordered to pay £525 in total, which included a £440 fine and £85 in costs.
