A teenage boy has been given a criminal behaviour order preventing him from entering Whittlesey town centre.

The order, granted on Wednesday, April 5, by Huntingdon Youth Court, prevents Albie Burrell, 16, from Whittlesey, from engaging in any anti-social behaviour until June 25, 2018.

Specifically, Burrell is not to enter an exclusion zone, including Whittlesey town centre and the Avenues, and must adhere to a curfew of being indoors at home between 9pm and 7am, unless certain conditions are met.

The order was applied for by the force’s South Fenland Problem Solving Team in partnership with Fenland District Council Community Safety Team.

Sergeant Richard Lugg, from the team, said: “Burrell’s behaviour has had a significant impact on the community over a long period of time and hopefully this order will provide respite and reassurance for the local community.

“His actions have included harassment and criminal damage.

“As part of the order we will be working with Burrell to prevent future offending.

“I hope this sends out a strong message that we will not tolerate such behaviour in Fenland and I urge members of the public to report incidents of anti-social behaviour by calling 101.”

The defendant must not:

* Act or encourage others to act in a manner that could cause harassment alarm and/or distress.

* Throw or otherwise propel any object at any person, vehicle or property.
