A MAN who has been a constant nuisance to Rishton residents has been given a three-year Anti-Social Beh-aviour Order.
Police secured the order against Jan Clough, 24, of Spring Street, Rishton, after continuous complaints about street drinking, noise nuisance and general crime and anti-social behaviour.
The conditions of the ASBO, which will run until 22 Septem-ber 2011, restrict him from drinking alcohol or being under the influence of alcohol or non-prescribed drugs in a public place in Hyndburn; and from associating with Tracey Kirby, 34, Shaun Anthony McDermott, 35, and Brian Mc-Cann, 35.
Speaking after the order was granted, PC Paul Haworth said: "Jan has been a constant nuisance for the residents of Rishton. His general anti-social behaviour and being involved in crime has been going on now for the last few years and has escalated over the last six months.
"I hope the community is reassured that this kind of behaviour will not be tolerated by the police and the courts and that we will always take firm action to assist the community and to combat persistent anti-social behaviour.
"I am really pleased with this result as the courts have awarded the ASBO not just for the minimum period of two years but for three.
"This result should help restore Rishton residents’ quality of life and have a huge impact on the community."
