The Blyth sisters changed by Asbos

Asbos and the Blyth sisters - Kayleigh's story

Two young sisters who have harassed and intimidated a community for years are trying to put their reputations behind them to start new lives.

The Branley sisters from Blyth were both given antisocial behaviour orders for their bad behaviour, banning them from certain parts of the town.

Now they've vowed to change so they can better their lives.

Their cases have been singled out by police and community workers in Northumberland who have come together to try to persuade unruly teenagers to behave themselves.
