TEENAGE tearaway Faye Szulc had the terms of her ASBO extended this week, after the court heard that she turned up at the City of Ely College and swore at staff.

Szulc is now banned from the college in Downham Road, and has been told she must keep away from several roads that surround the premises.

Presiding magistrate Brian Payne told Szulc: "You are a young lady determined to get yourself into trouble one way or another. Steps have been taken in the past to try and restrain you from getting into trouble.

"We recognise there have been particular problems in relation to staff and students and people who work at the college. These people are entitled to go about their work without abuse being hurled at them."

The 19-year-old had gone to the college on March 23, and saw deputy principal Richard Baker and head of year 10, Jamie Brooks.

"She had no business at the school and no permission to be on the school grounds," said prosecutor Yetunde Fawehinmi.

When asked to leave, Szulc swore, causing distress to staff and students. She used foul language when on her mobile phone, and swore when she said: "I don't care about my ASBO."

Mr Baker was concerned and distressed by the incident and told police: "I am sick and tired of the harassment and abuse directed at me when I am on duty, looking after the children. Her behaviour is unacceptable."

Szulc admitted using threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour at the college, and stealing a bottle of WKD Iron Bru from One Stop in Ely

"You are really not taking an awful lot of notice of what the courts are telling you. Unless you change your behaviour towards people in this city or elsewhere, you are going to find yourself in very serious trouble indeed," warned Mr Payne

Szulc was fined a total of £100 with £100 costs.

Other terms of her ASBO prevent her from going to Priors Court in Ely, and engaging in behaviour that causes harassment, alarm or distress, or is threatening, abusive or insulting to others in Ely or Soham.
