Teenager handed CBO preventing him entering Neston for almost three years Date published: 8th May 2017 10.18am

A teenager who made the lives of people living and working in Neston a misery has been handed a Criminal Behaviour Order banning him from Neston for almost three years.

The 16-year-old boy, who cannot be named for legal reasons, had been committing a string of violent offences since 2014, including affray and attempted robbery.

At Chester Crown Court on Friday 21 April he was issued with the Criminal Behaviour Order, which prevents him from entering Neston for two-and-a-half years and an Estate in the Wirral.

He is also prohibited from associating with a number of named people or attending school or organised events held by Wirral Borough Council, Merseyside Police or other professional bodies.

PC Graeme Morrison, of Ellesmere Port’s Beat Management Team, said: “This action has come about as a result of persistent offending which was causing distress to residents of Neston by this particular individual. I hope this sends a strong message that we will not tolerate this kind of behaviour in our towns, and continue to work closely with our partners to take robust action against those who persistently cause a misery to those who visit, work or live in Neston.”

The successful application for the Criminal Behaviour Order was part of an ongoing joint initiative between Cheshire and Merseyside Police.
