A CLEVEDON teenager has been given an antisocial behaviour order (ASBO) after a string of offences spanning two years.

Luke Golding was given the order when appearing in front of North Somerset Magistrates yesterday (Wed).

As part of the two-year ASBO, the 16-year-old has been banned from entering two huge areas of Clevedon for 12 months.

This includes any building or parts of the grounds of Clevedon School.

For 12 months he is also banned from entering, visiting or remaining in the area of the town centre between 4pm-6am, unless accompanied by a parent or guardian or returning home, when he should leave the area immediately.

Clevedon's PC Nick Butler made the ASBO application following a lot of help from the town's residents.

He said: "We would like to say thank you for the support from the Clevedon residents who gave great assistance in securing this ASBO.

"The written statements from some members of the public gave our application a lot of strength."

PC Butler explained that the ASBO was applied for after police received numerous calls from residents, business owners and building owners reporting antisocial behaviour and criminal offences committed by Golding.

He added: "We wanted this to go through for public reassurance but also in the hope of preventing the youth from committing more crime."

As part of the order, Golding has also been told to remain in his home overnight from 6pm-6am every day for three months and has been banned from drinking alcohol in a public place.

For six months he has also been banned from associating with, contacting or communicating with another specific teenager in Clevedon from 6pm-6am.

This second youth is due to be appear in court later this month and is expected to be dealt with in a similar way to Golding.

To help uphold Golding's ASBO, leaflets will be given to business owners in the town showing a photo of him and all the conditions he is supposed to stick to.
