A TEENAGER who has repeatedly terrorised a Burnley estate has been sent to a young offenders’ institution for a catalogue of crimes.
Just two days after Christmas, Wayne Lord, 19, escaped a prison sentence after being caught with a baseball bat hurling racist abuse near his home in Sedburgh Street. He was arrested a fortnight later after similar behaviour and Burnley magistrates have now given him four weeks youth custody.
Lord was already the subject of an ASBO imposed in August 2011 after tormenting residents on the Kibble Bank estate. He verbally abused and intimdated neighbours while high on drink and drugs before local police took him to court.
He was made the subject of a suspended prison sentence on December 27 for an incident dating back to last August. Lord was told he faced a 33-week term, suspended for 12 months, probation supervision and 150 hours’ community service.
But the court heard that on January 12 he was arrested after racially abusing Aneeq Ahmed in the street. He admitted using racially-aggravated threatening behaviour, breaching his ASBO and being in breach of suspended sentence order.
Lord is still barred from part of the estate and must also steer clear of associating with Cory White and Jonathan Royal.
