Offender is handed national Asbo
A man with a 60-strong string of convictions has been issued with a national Anti-Social Behaviour Order.

Daniel Elding, 20, formerly of Churchill Avenue in Horncastle will be restricted by the order when he is released from Prison.

Lincs Police said he plagued the town for three years, committing burglary, theft, verbal abuse, assault, criminal damage and carrying offensive weapons.

The Asbo, which lasts three years, restricts his behaviour nationwide.

Help offered

Under the order Elding is prohibited from entering any retail premises who tell him in writing that he is barred, carrying or drinking alcohol in public or entering Waring Street in Horncastle.

He must also not behave in a manner likely to cause alarm, harassment or distress to any person not living in the same house and he must attend probation or social services programmes set up for him on his release.

If he breaches any of the conditions he could be sent back to jail for up to five years.

Pc Nic Hanson from the Anti-Social Behaviour Order team at Lincolnshire Police said: "Because Daniel's behaviour was so out of bounds with the community the court decided to put some conditions on him with regards to his Asbo.

"A lot of effort has been put in by different agencies to try and stop Daniel's offending and to rehabilitate him.

"Unfortunately Daniel hasn't engaged with these partners and the ultimate sanction we sought was the Anti-Social Behaviour Order, so when he does come out there will be a programme in place which will stop his offending and rehabilitate him back into society."

Elding is scheduled to be released in September.
