Plant vandal agrees to behave herself

A teenage girl who damaged plants and engaged in other anti-social activity in Boston has agreed to abide by a six-month Acceptable Behaviour Contract. She will also undertake some days of restorative justice, which may involve litter picking and weeding.

The 16-year-old was seen in the presence of her mother by Boston Borough Council's anti-social behaviour officer and presented with CCTV evidence of her misdemeanours.

Detective work by the officer, aided by Boston's CCTV system, identified her as responsible for vandalising planters in Boston town centre and being involved in an earlier incident in which trees were destroyed at St John's Park. With the help of partner agencies she was also revealed to be involved in other incidents of anti-social behaviour including pelting food at passers-by from a rooftop vantage and shop lifting.
