Scrap Asbo call after rural study

PUBLISHED March 17, 2005

Anti-social behaviour orders should be abolished as part of efforts to end isolation among the young in rural areas, a study has said.

A Howard League for Penal Reform report into social deprivation and rural youth crime in the West Country said the young were often regarded as a threat.
As well as replacing Asbos with community projects, the report demanded more transport and leisure facilities.
