Mental health charities slam Asbo case

    Mental health charities have slammed the case of a suicidal woman
    who has been given an antisocial behaviour order banning her from
    places where she could potentially take her own life.

    Kim Sutton has been given an asbo banning her from rivers, bridges
    and multi-storey car parks by magistrates in Bath, Somerset, after
    being rescued from the same river three times.

    Chair of the bench Pamela Gwyther told Sutton: “You are not
    to dip one toe, not one finger, in a river or canal.”

    Sutton from Bath will face a jail sentence if she breaches the
    order.

    Sane chief executive Marjorie Wallace said: “An Asbo could
    make a person even more determined to go through with a suicide
    attempt.”
