  'Terror triplets' could get five years in prison

Teenagers nicknamed the "terror triplets", have found out they could get five years in prison because of their terrible behaviour.

They have broken what's called an "anti-social behaviour order" which they were given back in February.

Rude gestures

The order banned Shane, Natalie and Sarah, all 13, from places in Kent where they caused trouble.

They were accused of swearing at locals, hassling shopkeepers and even threatening to petrol bomb the house of a security guard.

Caught on camera

But last October security cameras caught them swearing and making rude gestures in a shop they weren't supposed to be in.

They surrounded a security guard who'd confronted a suspected teen shoplifter, and started to threaten and chuck abuse at him.

But even though CCTV cameras and witnesses gave evidence about them in court, they still denied they were involved.

The "terror triplets" will find out what their punishment is from the courts later in March.
