3 What is Anti-Social Behaviour (ASB)? Anti-social behaviour includes things such as:  rowdy, noisy behaviour in otherwise quiet neighbourhoods  night time noise from houses or gardens, especially between pm and 7.00 am  threatening, drunken or 'yobbish' behaviour  vandalism, graffiti and fly-posting  dealing or buying drugs on the street  litter and fly-tipping rubbish  aggressive begging

4 What is Anti- Social Behaviour (ASB)? Continued…  drinking in the street  setting off fireworks late at night  abandoning cars on the street Anti-social behaviour doesn't just make life unpleasant. It can ruin lives and make whole areas feel unsafe.

5 Fiona Pilkington and Francesca Hardwick- October 2007  A mother and her disabled daughter died when Ms Pilkington set fire to their car.  Four officers have since faced misconduct charges after “missed opportunities” to stop youths terrorising them.  An inquest heard that six months before her death she had told her family: “I give up!”
