Banned from every pub in UK - drunk Tipp man
Queen Elizabeth II

A Tipperary man has been banned from every pub in the United Kingdom for a year after he was found drunk in Windsor Castle, just yards from Queen Elizabeth's private apartments.

Thirty-two-year-old Robert Pennefather from Mullinahone appeared in court yesterday after he was arrested by police in November. He had climbed over an eight-foot gate.

Judge Howard Riddle said he was satisfied that Mr Pennefather posed no risk, but he sentenced him to two weeks in jail and fined him £1,000.

The incident recalled another in 1982, when Michael Fagan sat at the end of the Queen's bed talking to her before police arrived.
