SLAMMING doors is the latest offence to come under an Asbo clampdown in Camden.
A West Hampstead man, of Minster Road, received the order to put an end to his anti-social behaviour, which has included slamming doors, after residents said his angry behaviour was making their lives a misery.
The 53-year-old was handed an interim Asbo at Highbury Corner Magistrates Court in March. Police and Camden Council have requested he not be named.
Residents were said to have suffered three years of "abusive" and "intimidating" behaviour. The Asbo stops him from slamming doors but also from using threatening, abusive, intimidating or insulting language. It also bars him from causing harassment to his neighbours and includes conditions stopping him from playing loud music and leaving household rubbish in communal stairways.
Sgt Patrick Conyngham from Fortune Green SNT said: "We will not tolerate any sort of behaviour which has a negative affect on an area and people's quality of life." The interim Asbo will remain in place until a judge decides whether or not to grant a permanent order.
Meanwhile, after becoming the oldest man in Camden to receive an Asbo earlier this month Terence O'Rourke, 68, has unfortunately become the oldest man to breach the conditions of his Asbo.
