ASBOs go to the countryside

We tend to think of Anti Social Behaviour Orders as an urban thing.  Hoodies and housing estates spring to mind.  But ASBOs go to the countryside too, Tom Price, of Glamorgan Horse Traders Ltd, has been given an ASBO in the Cardiff Magistrates Court banning him from letting his horses to fly-graze or stray on to any roads. From now on he must have written permission from the owner on any land where he grazes his horses and he must not sell or transfer ownership of any horses without properly updated passports.

If Mr Price transgresses the Vale of Glamorgan Trading Standards and South Wales Police will arrest him and whisk him back to court for punishment.  The police have asked the public to alert them if they see Mr Price breaching his ASBO.  Fly-grazing is a huge problem in Wales so watch this space.
