TWO people have been prosecuted as part of Tower Hamlets council's crackdown on antisocial behaviour and underage drinking in Brick Lane.
The prosecutions come after the council brought in new measures, the Brick Lane dispersal zone which ran from July 23-August 30, to control loutish behaviour around the East End's curry mile over the summer.
Emmanuel Folco, of no fixed address, was seen drinking, swearing and shouting at passers-by in Brick Lane on July 23.
He was asked to leave the area by two police officers but returned 20 minutes later and continued to act in an antisocial way. He was then taken to Bethnal Green police station.
