Yob tag 'risks demonising youth'

PUBLISHED May 23, 2005

The branding of children as "yobs" risks demonising a whole generation of young people, the government's chief youth crime adviser has warned.

Youth Justice Board Chairman Rod Morgan told the Observer politicians should stop labelling youngsters yobs and find answers to the youth custody crisis.
It comes after a string of government announcements to tackle bad behaviour.
