Capital news drunk teens could
Alexander Forbes, 16, has been hit with an "exclusion zone" barring him from more than a dozen areas of Bingham and Magdalene in the Capital. It includes part of Magdalene Drive, yards from the family home. Forbes was accused of antisocial behaviour, including the drunken intimidation of residents, shouting and swearing, and making excessive noise over two years. Today, residents said a gang of youths were running amok in the area, smashing house and car windows and threatening elderly residents. Forbes, who turns 17 on Saturday, said he "didn't care" that he had been given the order covering 14 streets after an application to Edinburgh Sheriff Court by council chiefs.
