A man in Britain has pushed conviction records to new heights by being declared a criminal for the 500th time.

Alexander Duncan, 66, has reached the landmark by pleading guilty to being drunk and disorderly.

"It's a quite astonishing list," The Mirror quoted a Crown Prosecution source, as saying.

Hertford magistrates, who heard Duncan's record stretched back 47 years, have ordered him to spend a day in the cells.

Convictions since 1959 include shoplifting, breach of the peace, damage and failing to surrender to bail by claiming mistaken identity.
