15-year-old boy banned from Northamptonshire town centre


A 15-year-old boy has been banned from entering Wellingborough town centre.

The teenager, who cannot be identified because of his age, was given an antisocial behaviour order at Wellingborough Magistrates Court at the end of January.

The order bans him from entering Wellingborough town centre, acting in an antisocial manner and using abusive, threatening or intimidating language or behaviour.

Action was taken against the youth following reports of him causing a disturbance and being abusive to staff in both the town’s library and the Morrisons supermarket.

A spokesman for Northamptonshire Police’s antisocial behaviour unit said: “We will not hesitate to take action against people who commit antisocial behaviour.

“Hopefully our actions here will have brought respite to those people in Wellingborough who were suffering antisocial behaviour in this case.”
