No to appeal after double Asbo breach
A WOMAN alleged to have broken her Asbo by "aggressive" ranting had a bid to be freed on bail rejected.
The application to free Hannah Stewart, 41, from her remand in jail was turned down by Stroud magistrates.
They remanded Stewart, of Tetbury Lane, Nailsworth, in custody for four weeks until October 10.
The bench chairman said their decision was made because "we don't think anything has changed".

Stewart was accused of breaching her anti-social behaviour order on both August 17 and August 24 in Nailsworth.
The two charges, which her solicitor Joan Hughes said she "emphatically denied", alleged the defendant had shouted, sworn and "behaved in an aggressive manner and ranted causing alarm and distress".
"Miss Stewart has a difficult history," Mrs Hughes told the hearing.
"There have been mental health issues. She has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder, but also she has an alcohol problem.
"She has told me this morning she is never going to drink again."
Stewart, who appeared via video link from prison, was given the Asbo on August 17, but charged with breaking it that same day and again a few days later, prosecutor Louise Pinder said.
She said offences had also been committed on bail.
