A man has been handed Milton Keynes’ last-ever Anti-Social Behaviour Order (ASBO), and has banned from areas in the city centre for the next two years.

Anthony Porter, 32, of no fixed abode, was given the ASBO at Milton Keynes Magistrates’ Court on March 25.

It was granted following Porter’s conviction for being drunk and disorderly in the town centre.

Porter’s ASBO prohibits him from entering two areas within Central Milton Keynes - Station Square and Central Milton Keynes Shopping Centre including Lloyds Court and Xscape - and will be in place until March 17, 2017.

Due to a change in legislation this will be the last ASBO to be granted in Milton Keynes, as the orders are being replaced by Criminal Behaviour Orders.

PC David Goodwin, Milton Keynes anti-social behaviour officer, said: “Members of the public have been subjected to Porter’s anti-social behaviour over a number of years. It is not pleasant to see an individual drunk and disorderly and being abusive.

“In court, Porter agreed to the ASBO conditions and it is hoped that the limitations of his movements within the town centre will have a positive impact on both members of the public and himself.

“Members of the public are urged to contact Thames Valley Police via 101 if they see Porter breaching the ASBO.”
