7:00pm Thursday 7th March 2013 in News
A THUG accused of terrorising a whole estate has been banned from entering it.
Jess Volkert, whose notorious antics were exposed to the nation by Panorama and the documentary Trouble on the Estate has now been barred from entering Shadsworth, the Delph Estate and the majority of the Queens Park area of Blackburn.
He is also banned from being drunk in a public place and acting or inciting others to act anti-socially in the borough of Blackburn with Darwen.
The 21-year-old of Arran Avenue has been made the subject of the Anti Social Behaviour Order (ASBO) after making life difficult for dozens of residents by threatening to use violence and cause damage to property.
PC Mike Kearns, said: “Volkert has been a persistent nuisance in Shadsworth. This ASBO should send a positive message that the police and courts will not accept this sort of behaviour. People should be able to go to their local park or shop without being subject to this kind of disgraceful behaviour.
“We’ve tried to work with Volkert but his behaviour has continued to cause problems.
“Any breaches of the ASBO will be dealt with robustly.”
