Woman admits her sixth breach of ASBO

A WOMAN who admitted a sixth breach of her anti-social behaviour order burst into tears as she was remanded in custody by Fenland magistrates.

Elizabeth Manning - who is also in breach of a suspended jail sentence - broke her anti-social behaviour order by getting together with friends on a sunny Saturday.

Under the terms of her ASBO, Manning is prohibited from congregating in a group of three or more people in a public place.

On Saturday June 5, Manning was caught on CCTV as she walked across Chapel Road car park in Wisbech with a group of five people.

Manning, 20, who lives at The Foyer in North Street, Wisbech, was given her two-year ASBO in August 2008.

Other terms of the ASBO prevent her from entering Wisbech town centre at night and drinking alcohol in public places.

“There is no suggestion she was committing an offence or her behaviour was anti-social,” said solicitor Alison Muir.

“Since November she has been living at The Foyer and had made good progress. Her friends feel guilty that being with them has put her in breach of her ASBO.”
