A TEENAGE yob has been served an Anti Social order banning him for two years from a London street market.

Thames magistrates slapped the 'exclusion' order on 19-year-old Darren Davies to stop him going into East London's Roman Road Market because of his intimidation and threats at several premises including a bookmaker's and the Matchmakers pub.

He also can't go into any of the surrounding streets between Old Ford Road, Tredegar Road, St Stephen's Road and Parnell Road in Bow.

Davis, from Ordell Road, right on the edge of his exclusion zone, is also banned from being in a group of more than three anywhere in Tower Hamlets and from having a dog without a lead.

He told magistrates on September 22 that he had recently experienced the death of a friend and was trying to turn his life around.

Tower Hamlets council cabinet member Abdal Ullah said in a statement this week: "Davis has repeatedly intimidated and frightened members of the community and business employees.

"This court order means police and the council can tackle his anti-social behaviour if he breaches its terms."

The court order runs until September, 2011.
