Bassetlaw District Council and A1 Housing have obtained a two-year ASBO against Worksop thug Liam Gilfoyle at Worksop Magistrates’ Court.

The ASBO prevents Gilfoyle from entering or remaining in areas of north Worksop between the boundaries of Carlton Road and Blyth Road, including Prospect, Larwood and Kilton.

Gilfoyle, of no fixed abode, is also prevented from begging or demanding money and encouraging others to do so throughout Worksop.

The full order was granted on Friday 5th September 2014 following a catalogue of violent and abusive acts, harassment, theft and criminal damage against members of the public.

The ASBO will remain in place until 5th September 2016 and should Gilfoyle breach any part of these orders he will be committing a criminal offence and could be fined or sent to be prison for up to five years .

Simon Greaves, leader of Bassetlaw Council, said: “The harassment and abusive behaviour this is individual subjected his victim to is almost systematic and totally unacceptable.”

“By obtaining this ASBO, it shows that Bassetlaw Council and its partners are committed to tackling anti-social behaviour in our communities.”

“We will do everything within our power to ensure that residents and businesses are not harassed or intimidated by a small minority of individuals for their own selfish needs.”
Gerald Connor, community safety co-ordinator at Bassetlaw Council, said: “These prohibitions have been put in place to prevent Liam Gilfoyle from causing distress and harassment to the general public.”

“The breach of an ASBO is a criminal offence and should you be made aware of Gilfoyle committing a breach, please don’t hesitate to contact Notts Police on telephone number 101.
