Asbos make their big screen debut

    West Surrey police have been screening images of people issued
    with antisocial behaviour orders in Guildford town centre in the
    first initiative of its kind.

    Shoppers were treated to a special “show” on a designated “wall
    of shame”, featuring two men who had been imprisoned for breaching
    Asbos as part of the locally organised antisocial behaviour
    week.

    Meanwhile, a new pressure group is calling for the government to
    look at the “negative” impact of Asbos in the run-up to the general
    election. A promise to achieve safer communities was one of Tony
    Blair’s six pledges unveiled at Labour’s conference in Gateshead
    last week.

    Asbo Concern will be launched next month with meetings in
    Manchester and London.
