The Westmorland Gazette: James Walker, who has had his ASBO extended James Walker, who has had his ASBO extended

A TROUBLEMAKER known for carrying out violent assaults when drunk has had his anti-social behaviour order (ASBO) extended by police.

According to the terms of the order, James Daniel Walker, 21, of Oxenholme Road, Kendal, is banned from drinking alcohol in any public place, apart from ‘on-licenced premises’.

He is also barred from being drunk in a public place and behaving in a way that could cause harassment, alarm or distress in any public or private place.

The ASBO was extended at Barrow Magistrates Court, when restrictions were put in place that will last until January 31, 2015.

PC Alistair Pease, from Kendal Neighbourhood Policing Team, said: “Walker has a history of becoming extremely violent when drunk and directing his anger towards unsuspecting members of the public.

“We applied for an extension of this ASBO to help protect the public. It sets out clear conditions that he will have to abide by.

“If he breaches his ASBO by breaking these conditions, police officers will have the power to arrest him.”

Kendal Inspector Paul Latham, who is in charge of policing in the area, added: “No individual should have to endure Walker’s violence.

“Behaviour which has a negative impact on the lives of others will not be tolerated, and we hope this ASBO will add another layer of protection to those living in Kendal.”

Alongside his ASBO, Walker will be managed by police and the Probation Service as a prolific offender.

Any residents who see Walker breaching the conditions of his ASBO should contact police immediately on 101.
