Matches
The teenager has been banned from lighting fires and having petrol

A 13-year-old is amongst those given an anti-social behaviour order (Asbo) in Dundee in the past year.

The Asbo bans the teenager from attempting to set fire to people's clothes, fighting, throwing stones, banging doors and drawing graffiti.

The youngster is also warned against lighting a fire anywhere in the area or possessing petrol, diesel or any flammable liquid without proper reason.

In total, 25 Asbos were issued in 2007/08, compared to 14 in 2006/07.

Council figures show that the oldest Asbo recipient was 70 - he has been told not to play his TV or radio too loud or be verbally abusive to his neighbours.

Among the other cases is a 62-year-old who has been warned against sending threatening letters, throwing rubbish into a garden and letting his dog run loose.

Others have also been warned about the volume of their radios or televisions, their swearing and shouting, making loud banging noises in their home and some have been banned from hanging around with certain people.
