Jail term for Asbo neighbour

A NIGHTMARE neighbour whose anti-social behaviour has caused a headache for her community has been given a prison sentence.

June Clifford, 55, of Addycombe Gardens, Rothbury, was given a 21-week sentence by magistrates at South East Northumberland on Tuesday.

Clifford, who received a two-year criminal anti-social behaviour order in June last year for her drink-fuelled disorder, pleaded guilty to three breaches of the order, harrasment and failing to appear at court.

She had previously been refused bail by the court on two occasions after no suitable address could be found.

Speaking after sentencing, Acting Alnwick Police Inspector Neville Wharrier, said: “Ths shows that anyone who commits anti-social behaviour, causing so many problems in their community, will be dealt with robustly by the courts.”
