A MUSSELBURGH woman has received an anti-social behaviour order (ASBO) banning her from shouting, swearing or using threatening and abusive language or behaviour at her home and towards other residents.

The ASBO was granted against Vivienne Stewart, 39, of Stoneybank Gardens South, following an application to Edinburgh Sheriff Court by East Lothian Council.

The court was presented with details of the alleged anti-social behaviour of Ms Stewart, which included shouting and swearing, excessive noise and reports of late-night disturbances.

The terms of the ASBO ban her from behaving in a way that causes or is likely to cause alarm or distress to others, including playing a radio, TV or other sound-producing devices at anti-social levels, as well as shouting, swearing or using threatening, intimidating, aggressive or abusive language or behaviour within her home.

A council spokesperson said: “East Lothian Council, with the support of Police Scotland, will not hesitate in taking robust action against those whose behaviour causes alarm and distress to others.”
