LOUGHBOROUGH: Leaflet drop over banned couple

Leaflet drop over banned couple

Donna Allen and Sabrina Bullard
The two women are banned from
seven areas in Charnwood

A council is sending leaflets to thousands of homes in Leicestershire to try to prevent two women breaking an anti-social behaviour injunction.

Donna Allen and Sabrina Bullard, both of no fixed abode, are banned from Loughborough and six surrounding villages until 20 July 2008.

Charnwood Borough Council is asking residents to get in touch if they see the pair in the excluded areas.

The women were given an anti-social behaviour injunction on 24 January.

Crack house

Leaflets include photographs of Allen and Bullard and inform residents of the areas they are excluded from, which include Shepshed, Quorn, Mountsorrel, Syston, Barrow upon Soar and Sileby.

On 25 January, a crack house closure notice was served on their former council house on Freehold Street, shutting it for three months.

They were also forbidden from possessing any controlled drug within Leicestershire or the city of Leicester.

Clare Holford, of the borough council, said: "The purpose of the leaflets is two-fold. Primarily it's to ensure that Sabrina and Donna are not within the excluded areas and to ask the community to help us ensure that they're not within those areas.

"The second reason for the leaflet is to show local communities that we are serious about combating anti-social behaviour and to give a warning to people who may cause us problems with anti-social behaviour in the area."
