THREE young girls were given tough ASBO-style orders at a youth court last week – and all of them have been ordered to stay away from Poole's bus station.

The youths – who are aged 12, 14 and 16 – have been ordered to comply with a series of restrictions as part of the orders.

None of the girls can be named because of their age.

The 14-year-old was made the subject of an interim anti-social behaviour injunction. As part of the order, she has been told to keep away from Poole bus station at the Dolphin Centre unless she is with her parents.

She is also ordered not to return to any shop, restaurant or takeaway that she has already been barred from; spit, swear or shout at anyone; call anyone a rude name in public; be in a group of more than three; make any threats to harm anyone; or drink alcohol in public.

During the same hearing, the girl admitted two counts of assaulting emergency workers at the Dolphin Centre in December 2018 and a related count of using threatening or abusive words or behaviour within the hearing or sight of a person likely to be caused harassment, alarm or distress.

She also admitted stealing from Asda in Culliford Crescent, Poole, failing to comply with a direction to leave the bus station in Poole and assaulting a person in KFC at the Dolphin Centre by beating him.

The girl will come back before the court in April for a further hearing.

The 12-year-old girl and 16-year-old girl were also ordered to comply with a similar list of restrictions, which also include drinking in public and making threats to hit, punch or kick members of the public.
