Curfew-zone children 'can be moved like sacks of carrots'

PUBLISHED May 27, 2005

The government's antisocial behaviour powers allow children to be moved as if they were a "sack of carrots" but may disregard their individual rights, a high court judge said this afternoon.

Lord Justice Brooke's comments came at the start of what is expected to be a two-day hearing in a test case which challenges a key plank of the government's antisocial behaviour agenda.
