A TEENAGER who has breached his five-year ASBO for a second time has been locked up.

Vincent Foster, 18, of Heanor Road, hurled abuse at residents of flats in Corporation Road, Ilkeston, in the early hours of Friday March 2.

Under the terms of his ASBO, handed to him after a string of violent and drugs-related incidents in Kirk Hallam last year, he was ordered not to act in a manner which causes harassment, alarm or distress.

The day after his arrest, he appeared before Derby Magistrates and was handed a four-week sentence.

After the hearing Insp Nick Daines at Ilkeston station said: “It is sad to see that Mr Foster has not learnt the clear lesson that if he breaches his ASBO we can and will take action against him.

“I hope this reassures the community that obtaining the ASBO was only the first part of the process and that we will not simply leave it there.

“We will robustly enforce the conditions to reduce the harm that he causes and to protect local residents.”

Foster’s ASBO kicked in when he was released from prison in November.

Three weeks later he breached the order by being abusive in Ilkeston town centre to his cousin but avoided a prison sentence.
