A TEENAGER has been slapped with a Criminal Behaviour Order after breaching his community protection notice. 

Kieron Stannard, 18, of St Mary's Place, Newbury, was originally handed a community protection notice on March 1, following persistent anti-social behaviour, and a condition meant he was unable to enter Reading Town Centre. 

He breached this on March 6 after walking down Friar Street. 

He has now been banned from entering the town centre except for the Caversham entrance to the train station, and from engaging in any anti-social behaviour. 

Stannard was also fined £100 and ordered to pay £130 court costs.

PC Nicola Henderson based at Reading police station said: “This is a good outcome for the local community who have been impacted by persistent anti-social behaviour over several months.

“Thames Valley Police take reports of such behaviour very seriously and we will use a range of legislation to bring those responsible to justice.

“Anyone affected by anti-social behaviour can contact the 24-hour Thames Valley Police enquiry centre on 101 and ask to speak to their local neighbourhood team.”
