Not only did a court ban a 17-year-old from a city shopping centre for a year, but they also allowed publication of his photo to alert shopkeepers and the public.

Charlie Tyrell cannot enter the Queensgate shopping centre in Peterborough for the next 12 month following persistent anti-social behaviour (ASB).

PC Charlie Adams, from the Peterborough City Centre Neighbourhood Policing Team (NPT), said: “Tyrrell has been causing issues for businesses and the public in the city centre for some time and his behaviour has been completely unacceptable.

A hearing at Huntingdon Youth Court on Wednesday, 12 April, heard how Charlie Tyrrell, 17, had engaged in ASB amounting to assaults, threatening security officers, criminal damage, intimidating members of the public and assaulting police officers.

“He has shown remorse for his actions and was very apologetic in court, particularly to the police for his behaviour, and stated he wanted to turn his life around.

“We hope this is a fresh start for him and this is what was needed for him to become a respectful and upstanding member of the community.

“Let this be a warning to others that we will not accept this sort of behaviour in our city and will look to seek further injunctions against anyone else found to be persistently causing ASB.”

Tyrrell had already received civil banning letters from Queensgate but ignored the bans and continued with his behaviour.

The ASB injunction imposed by the court says that Tyrell must not enter any part of Queensgate Centre, including the car parks and bus station, until 11.59pm on 11 April 2024.

Failure to obey the order is an arrestable offence which could result in him being subject to supervision, sent to a detention centre or fined.

Over recent months, the local NPT say they have been working closely with Queensgate in response to anti-social behaviour in the area, including stepping up patrols, putting in place dispersal orders and also making several arrests and charges.
