Two men and a woman have been given banning orders in a West Norfolk town after a violent assault in which two people were allegedly attacked.

eastlaw, acting for King’s Lynn and West Norfolk Borough Council used new powers under the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Police Act 2014 to secure the injunctions.

If the injunctions are breached, the individuals can be arrested. John Greenhalgh, the council’s environmental health manager said “we take these matters very seriously indeed. By publicising the injunctions members of the public can assist with helping us to enforce them and it is a clear message to anyone thinking of behaving badly that we do take action and will follow it through to protect the community from unacceptable behaviour. We believe we are one of the first authorities to use the new powers in this way.”
