Asbo – the bizarre

In February, Kim Sutton was given an order that stated that she was not to “dip one toe or finger” in any river nor loiter about any bridge or multi-storey car park, after repeated suicide attempts had failed to achieve anything except wasted police time. Sutton has a personality disorder and is not the only one with an Asbo that mental health charities are concerned about. At least five autism sufferers also have Asbos at the moment.

A man in Yorkshire was banned from all NHS buildings after a 16-year obsession with collecting medical equipment drove him to the attempted theft of hospital property – 47 times in the past year alone, one of which involved him faking a heart attack.

In Oldham, meanwhile, an unnamed teenager has been prevented from having the name of his gang shaved into his head.
