A man who stopped more than 500 people from getting their Covid booster jab – by supergluing shut a vaccination centre has been jailed.

Hayden Brown squirted glue in the keyholes of the doors, meaning that staff and patients temporarily could not get inside.

Brown was jailed for 12 weeks on Wednesday he admitted causing a public nuisance.

The 53-year-old struck the vaccination centre in Gorleston, Norfolk on the evening of November 26 and was identified by covert cameras at the location.

Superintendent Nathan Clark, of Norfolk Police, said Brown’s actions prevented more than 500 people from getting a Covid vaccination.

“A large number of these people are elderly and this disruption will have caused great anxiety to those who have chosen to be vaccinated and then not able to attend,” he said.

Brown, of Gorleston, was also sentenced for possession of a Class B drug after a quantity of cannabis was found at his home following his arrest.
