A “NUISANCE” teen has been banned from parts of Blackpool and Cleveleys after being slapped with an ASBO.

Samuel Bury, 14, of Alconbury Crescent, Anchorsholme, was handed the two-year order at Blackpool Magistrates’ Court.

Residents had complained to police about Bury climbing on people’s roofs, trespassing in gardens, throwing stones at houses and cars and using abusive language.

PC Edward Baldwin, Thornton community beat manager, said: “Bury had caused a nuisance in the Cleveleys and Blackpool area and we had received numerous complaints from local residents about his behaviour.

“This should reassure them we do act on their concerns.

“It should also send a strong message to those who commit anti- social behaviour that it will not be tolerated.”

The ASBO will prevent Bury from entering or being within specified areas of Cleveleys and Blackpool unless accompanied by his father or his mother.

He is allowed to travel along Crescent West, Rossall Road and West Drive West to get to or from his father’s address but he is not allowed to loiter at any point on his way.

The teenager is banned from climbing or attempting to climb on any wall or roof of any building or outbuilding of any residential or business premises without prior permission from the occupant.

He is also forbidden from using threatening, insulting, abusive or disorderly words or any behaviour which would cause harassment, alarm or distress to other people.

He is not allowed to enter the boundary of any residential properties in Wyre or Blackpool without permission from the occupant and he is not allowed to be with another 14-year-old boy, specifically named in the order, in a public place in Wyre or Blackpool.

Coun Tony Williams, Anchorsholme ward councillor, added: “Anti-social behaviour from anyone at any age can affect people’s health if it is constant.

“Obviously this behaviour was getting beyond annoying. I hope this will be a sharp shock to help him empathise with other people’s feelings.”

The ASBO will remain in place until midnight on June 13, 2013.
