Ottery troublemakers face being slapped with anti-social behaviour orders (ASBO) if they continue to misbehave, police have warned.

Ottery officers said this week three people, two male and one female, were handed first warning letters over acts of disorder. Neighbourhood beat manager PC Phil Thomas said: “This is the first stage of the ASBO escalation process- the warnings have reminded people of their responsibilities in the community, and, any future incidents of anti-social behaviour or violence will lead to them going up that ladder.”
