A MARCH teenager caused distress to the owner of a March takeaway after telling him to go back to his own country as nobody could understand him.
The 14-year-old, who cannot be named for legal reasons, pleaded guilty to using racially abusive language on January 11.
At Fenland Youth Court last Thursday the boy was given six-month referral order in an attempt to stop him offending again.
He went into the USA Chicken takeaway, in Broad Street, at about 3.15pm on January 3, but was thrown out by the owner who had previously banned him from entering.

After leaving the shop the boy stood outside and made a number of gestures through the window before leaving the scene. He was arrested later the same day.
