Series of complaints lead to interim ASBO

The court was presented with details of the alleged antisocial behaviour of Mr Sands which included threatening and abusive behaviour and language towards neighbours and others within the Carlyle Gardens area of Haddington.

The terms of the interim ASBO prohibits Mr Sands from behaving in a way that causes or is likely to cause alarm or distress to others and includes shouting, swearing using threatening, aggressive or abusive behaviour and playing music at unacceptably loud volume.

A council spokesperson said:

"The interim ASBO served on Mr Sands has resulted from repeated complaints from neighbours and others within the local community of Haddington who have been alarmed and disturbed by his behaviour. The council’s Safer Communities team worked closely with Police Scotland colleagues to respond to complaints and gather the evidence to present to court."
