AN interim ASBO was slapped on a 13-year-old Ely youth this week, to curb his behaviour for the next six weeks.

Under the anti-social behaviour order, the teenager is banned from:

*being carried on a motorcycle

*going into property without the owner's consent

*possessing or consuming alcohol

*behaving in a way that would cause harassment, alarm, or distress to people in Ely.

City magistrates were told that the boy - who cannot be named for legal reasons -- was sentenced for an offence of criminal damage earlier this month, and his mother was given a parenting order.
