Legal action follows series of complaints

A full Antisocial Behaviour Order (ASBO) has been granted against Stuart Hulbert (48) of Mayfield Crescent, Musselburgh following an application to the court by East Lothian Council.

The court was presented with details of the alleged antisocial behaviour of Mr Hulbert which included threatening and abusive behaviour and language towards neighbours and others within the local community.

The terms of the ASBO prohibits Mr Hulbert from behaving in a way that causes or is likely to cause alarm or distress to others and includes shouting, swearing using threatening, intimidating, aggressive or abusive behaviour towards residents or visitors at Mayfield Crescent.

A council spokesperson said:

“The ASBO served on Mr Hulbert applies for 18 months and reflects the seriousness of his continued actions which have disturbed and alarmed neighbours and others within the community. East Lothian Council has strong antisocial behaviour policies in place to deal with actions that have negative effects on others and will continue to pursue legal options when considered appropriate.”
