A 53-year-old man from Letchworth GC has been given a two-week prison term after pleading guilty to breaching an anti-social behaviour order (ASBO).

John Seabrook, of Campers Avenue, was arrested on March 4 and appeared before Hatfield Remand Court on March 5.

He also received an eight-week prison sentence for breach of a suspended sentence. The two sentences will run consecutively.

Sergeant Steve Oliphant, from the Letchworth Neighbourhood Team, said: "ASBOs are sought when persons have a long history of anti-social behaviour and, despite interventions from the police and the courts, those persons fail to moderate their behaviour.

"This behaviour can cause alarm and distress for other members of the community. ASBOs are just one tool which can help to address a person's behaviour and help them take responsibility for their own actions and therefore improve the quality of life for other residents.
