A teenage tearaway described as having an horrendous criminal record got into trouble again when he went to stay with a friend.

The 14-year-old Fleetwood boy, who can not be identified for legal reasons, went missing from home during his curfew time.

The defendant pleaded guilty to breaching an Anti Social Behaviour Order.

He was bailed for pre-sentence reports by Blackpool Youth Court.

Presiding magistrate, Janet Wardell, told the boy: “The recommendation we will be giving is that you go to custody. We think you have reached the end of the line.”

Pam Smith, prosecuting, said the boy had been put on a two-year Asbo in July last year. One condition of the order was that he should keep a tagged curfew at his given address between 7pm and 7am.

On January 9 the firm monitoring his tag saw he was not a home for his curfew. Police found the boy asleep at another address in Fleetwood.

The boy was described as committing an horrendous number of criminal offences last year and he had previously breached court orders.

Alan Godwin, defending, said his client heard a teenage friend from London had come to visit relatives in Fleetwood, so he went to stay with him.
