A BOY of 14 who continually abused and upset residents in the Trinity area of Burnley, has been given a two-year Anti-Social Behaviour Order and banned from the area by the courts.

Reedley magistrates on Thursday made the order against teenager Jake Biriny, of Herbert Street, Burnley, when he appeared before them.

Magistrates were told that, over the last six months, police have dealt with numerous calls about Biriny from residents with reports of damage, missiles being thrown at houses and cars and intimidation and harassment of vulnerable people who live in the area around Manchester Road.

Under the conditions of the Order, Biriny must not act in an anti-social manner anywhere in the Burnley borough. He is also banned from entering or being on Carlton Road, Montague Road, upper Herbert Street or Queensberry Road. Burnley, unless working on a paper round. He must not associate with another named teenager or throw any object at any person, house, or other property.

Community Beat Manager PC John Fisher said: “Biriny has been a constant menace in the area and this Order will offer the residents some much needed protection against his behaviour. I encourage residents to contact us if they see anyone committing anti-social behaviour in their neighbourhood. The police and the council will not tolerate this type of behaviour and we will continue to take action to tackle any issues which are raised in the future.”

Officers from the Neighbourhood Policing team secured the ASBO after working with Burnley Borough Council’s Community Safety Partnership.
