A MAN was sentenced to 14 days in jail after refusing to give his name when he appeared in court.
It followed a massive demonstration which saw a courtroom taken over by protesters in Wirral.
Six men had been arrested following chaotic scenes at Birkenhead County Court on Monday afternoon.
It happened after hundreds of people turned up to support former Referendum Party candidate Roger Hayes who has refused to pay his council tax, claiming it is unlawful.
Two of those arrested were later released without charge.
The other four were brought before Wirral Magistrates Court yesterday.
But one of them refused to give any personal details and, known as Detainee B, was then imprisoned for 14 days when he would not accept a binding-over after being found guilty of breach of the peace.
Jay Doyle, of Dacey Road, Anfield, was bound over to the sum of £100 after being found guilty of the same offence.
Steven Paul Aspinall, 43, of Rossendale Road, Burnley and Malcolm David Massey, 31, of Abbey View Road, Pershore, Worcester, who are charged with using or threatening unlawful violence were bailed until May 3 on condition they do not enter any courtroom in the UK unless by prior arrangement.
