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 anti-social behaviour order at Wellingborough Magistrates Court at the end of January.
The order bans him from entering Wellingborough town centre, acting in an anti-social 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 anti-social behaviour unit said: “We will not hesitate to take action against people who commit anti-social behaviour.
“Hopefully our actions here will have brought respite to those people in Wellingborough who were suffering antisocial behaviour in this case.”
