Man given four-year Letchworth ASBO
A MAN has been given an Anti-Social Behaviour Order (ASBO) to stop drunken and abusive behaviour in a town centre.
Martin Lewis, 46, and of no fixed abode, appeared at Stevenage Magistrates’ Court on August 31 and was given a four-year ASBO which limits his activities in Letchworth GC.
Lewis will be prohibited from using abusive, insulting, offensive, threatening or intimidating language or behaviour in a public place or in any place to which the public has access in Letchworth GC and being in possession of any opened or open vessel containing intoxication liquor in a public place in the town.
Lewis is also prohibited from entering Letchworth Town Centre, except to attend pre-arranged appointments at the job centre, and associating with Stephen Denyer in any way in a public place or a place which the public has access to in Letchworth GC.
PC Julie-Ann Cundell, who is the North Herts Anti-Social Behaviour officer, said: “The court found that Lewis had repeatedly acted in an anti-social manner in the town centre.

“The ASBO was secured with full support of shops and pubs in the town who have had to put up with his drunken and abusive behaviour. I would like to thank them for their help. I hope this goes some way in helping to make the town centre an even more enjoyable place to be.
“I would urge the community to contact police via the non-emergency number 101 if they witness Lewis breaching his ASBO so we can take the appropriate action.”
