A RAMSBOTTOM man has been given a three-year ASBO after receiving repeated warnings about his anti-social behaviour.

Bury Magistrates Court granted the ASBO against Paul Platt hearing evidence of him being verbally aggressive towards shop assistants and health workers, acting in a threatening manner while using public transport and towards members of the public.

Platt, 28, of Hillside Road, had received several warnings about his behaviour from Bury Council’s anti-social behaviour team and the police, and had repeatedly breached an Acceptable Behaviour Contract which he had signed.

During the period of the ASBO, Platt must not consume alcohol or be intoxicated in a public place; shout or use foul and abusive language in public place; use threatening or intimidating language or behaviour misuse Transport for Greater Manchester services, including buses and Metrolink; and not enter a defined area of Bridge Street, Ramsbottom.

He is also banned from entering Bargain Booze, 50 Bolton Road West, Ramsbottom, Co-operative Food, 2 Vernon Road, Greenmount, Co-operative Food, 103 Parr Lane, Unsworth and Tesco Express, Irwell Street, Ramsbottom.

Coun Jane Lewis, cabinet member for communities, said: “The council and police have repeatedly tried to support Paul Platt in getting the help he needs to address his anti-social behaviour. However, he has persisted in causing nuisance and distress to others.”
