'Intimidating' teenager banned from Forest Fields area
A 16-YEAR-OLD has been banned from entering Forest Fields after intimidating residents and business owners.
The teenager, who cannot be named, was previously issued with an anti-social behaviour order (Asbo) which forbade him from entering certain streets.
However, he continued to break the order and has now been banned from the area completely.
Richard Antcliff, head of Community Protection, said: "Since the court order was put in place, he continued to breach the conditions and appeared before the courts on many occasions receiving further conditions and prohibitions.

"Due to his continued offending, his parents hoped that breaking contact with those he was prohibited from associating with would control his behaviour.
"Over the following period of time, his offending behaviour did, however, escalate, particularly within the Forest Fields area, and became a further concern due to its criminal nature."
At Nottingham Magistrates' Courthe was convicted of stealing a laptop from a house in a street he was banned from. He was given a six-month electronic curfew, ordered to pay £325 in costs, and given a further three-year Anti-Social Behaviour Order upon Conviction (CRASBO) which prohibits him from entering the entire Forest Fields area.
