The Facebook posts of a man who became the first person in the UK to be jailed for visiting a hospital without a valid medical reason have been revealed.

Self-styled actor Kierran Stevenson, 32, took to Facebook on Monday, bragging that he was going to use his daily exercise to visit Stoke Mandeville Hospital in Aylesbury, Bucks.

Stevenson, of Aylesbury, wrote: "On one of my daily ALLOWED excursions... I'm gonna take a walk around the hospital and get some real numbers for you.

"Time to have a look with my own eyes."

Stevenson was spotted on CCTV at the hospital a short time later, before then posting his own photos on Facebook of his visit, slamming the lack of precautions and security at the hospital.

He was arrested on Tuesday, and yesterday was jailed for 12 weeks at Oxford Magistrates Court, and ordered to pay £300 compensation to the NHS Trust.

Stevenson's actions were branded as "reckless" by Chief Crown Prosecutor Jaswant Narwhal, and Investigating Officer, Detective Chief Inspector Lewis Prescott Mayling, of Aylesbury CID.

The Crown Prosecutor said on Thursday: "Despite there being clear warnings about entering the hospital, Stevenson walked around the building, speaking with staff and breaching social distancing guidelines.

"His reckless behaviour was extremely distressing for staff and put them, patients and the public at risk.

"We will continue to prosecute anyone who acts irresponsibly risking harm to others during the current pandemic."

Posting on Facebook on Monday afternoon, he wrote: "I went to ICU, A+E, Level One, Level Two, upstairs and downstairs. No sanitisers in sight, no bacterial rub, nothing.

"Spoke to two different workers - Vinny (he called himself, lanyard was backwards) is loving the overtime he's getting and wore a mask for about one day when it first hit Stoke Mandeville a Month ago.

He added: "I'm not saying covid doesn't exist, it's a respiratory virus, but is predominantly focusing on the elderly and infirm (same as standard flu).

"Now think about how many people day in day out dying from normal s**t... but getting put into the covid-19 stat to keep the pandemic going."

And he ended his Facebook post by writing: "Bottom line is, if your [sic] missing your lattes Stoke Mandeville Costa is still open."
