A TEENAGER has been banned from Kirkburton for almost two years.

Jamie Harrison, of Park Side, Flockton, was given an Asbo (Anti-Social Behaviour Order) by Huddersfield magistrates barring him from the village until March 22, 2013.

The 18-year-old has also been banned from riding mini-motorbikes or trials bikes anywhere in south Kirklees or causing anti-social or threatening behaviour .

Harrison was given the Asbo after he stole a mini-motorbike from a Kirkburton shed in July last year.

Leaflets with maps displaying the boundaries of his ban and a picture of his face have been distributed to people in the community.
