AN ORDER banning a Haddington woman from shouting and swearing in her home has been issued at Edinburgh Sheriff Court.

Natalie Breslin was given an anti-social behaviour order (ASBO), which will remain in place for two years.

The Brown Street resident is prohibited from shouting, swearing, using aggressive, abusive or intimidating language or behaviour within her property or on nearby High Street.

Ms Breslin is also prohibited from shouting, swearing, or using threatening, intimidating, aggressive or abusive language or behaviour at a property on the town’s Riverside Drive, and of behaving in a manner that would cause or be likely to cause alarm or distress to residents or visitors of the street.

Ms Breslin, 35, is similarly prohibited from behaving in an anti-social manner within North Berwick’s Glenburn Road and Lochbridge Road.

A council spokeswoman said: “East Lothian Council will take the appropriate legal action against those who persistently behave in a way that causes alarm and distress to others.

“In this case, our Safer Communities Team worked closely with Police Scotland in collating the evidence used to inform the application to court.

“I would ask anyone affected by anti-social behaviour to call the council’s dedicated 24 hours a day helpline on 01875 824 307.”
