Two troublemaking brothers from Corby have been banned from the town centre for the next two years.
Connor Moore, 15, and Jordan Moore, 13 were given Anti-Social Behaviour Orders after Corby Borough Council took them to court this week.
The pair, of Lynton Grove, Corby, were given the orders after causing problems for residents and businesses in Corby Town Centre and the surrounding streets, including using abusive language and behaviour in shops to both staff and customers, throwing stones, spitting on windows and knocking down displays in local shops.
Corby Council worked in partnership with Northamptonshire Police and local people in order to successfully take these cases to court.
The orders will be in place for two years and conditions for both brothers state that they must not:
Throw things at other people or property (except whilst playing sports on a field)
Remain in shops and other places when told to leave by an authorised person
Spit in a public place
Enter Corby Town Centre area of junction George Street, Alexandra Road, Elizabeth Street, Anne Street and Westcott Way to George Street. Except between the hours of 12noon and 4pm.
Should any of these prohibitions be broken the brothers can be subjected to a fine, community penalty or custodial sentence.
Deputy Leader of Corby Council Cllr Jean Addison said: “Obtaining these anti-social behaviour orders is great news for the residents and businesses of the town centre area who should not have to deal with this kind of behaviour in their workplace or community. It shows that real partnership working produces great results and that anti-social behaviour will not be tolerated.
“As a local authority we do focus on early intervention and an ASBO is the last resort, however will continue to work alongside other partner agencies to help support families in these cases.”
