Teenager to fight 'anti-yob' laws

PUBLISHED May 26, 2005

An "upstanding" teenager who is subject to a town centre curfew is to challenge anti-social behaviour laws in court.

The 15-year-old will say a "dispersal zone" in Richmond, London, where police can remove all under-16s from the area after 9pm, infringes his human rights.
The youth, backed by campaign group Liberty, is taking Richmond Council and the Met police to London's High Court.
