  City terrorised by teenage girl

A 13-year-old girl has been banned from going into Leeds city centre for causing trouble and leading a gang.

Ellen Moore was given an anti-social behaviour order (Asbo) that also stops her going on buses on her own, and covering her face with a scarf or hood.

She is reported to be the leader of a gang of kids called the Leeds Town Crew who caused lots of trouble there.

If Ellen does any of the things the Asbo bans her from she could end up being locked away.

Around half the members of the Leeds Town Crew - including Ellen's older sister Phillipa - have been given Asbos.

Keith Wakefield, leader of Leeds City Council, said: "This is further proof of our determination to break up gangs who cause trouble on Leeds estates."

He added that the council would carry on trying to get other trouble makers banned too.
