A WOMAN has been banned from every shop in Bicester's town centre.

Tanya Thomson was handed the criminal behaviour order after attempting to steal various items from specific shops she previously had been banned from.

The 38-year-old, of Ruskin Walk, is now prohibited from entering any shop in the town centre, including all shops in Sheep Street, Pioneer Square, and Crown Walk.
