LEAFLETS identifying a 13-year-old given a two year ASBO are to be distributed to victims of his crimes.

The council is taking the unusual step of handing out leaflets to all residents on the Mercator Estate identifying the thug so they can report him if he is seen breaching the terms of his Anti-Social Behaviour Order (Asbo).

David Lamming of Belmont Park Close, Lewisham, was given the two-year order at Camberwell Magistrates' Court on May 26.

He is now banned from entering the central Lewisham estate, unless he has permission from the council.

The court order bars him from threatening or intimidating residents and shop owners.

He is also banned from using racist or sexist language.

Because he was previously a gang member David is forbidden to hang around with more than two other people.

He will also be in breach of his Asbo if he causes any damage by vandalism or graffiti, throws stones, carries a blade, shoplifts or wears a hoodie.

The case was brought to court by Lewisham Council, the police, and Circle 33, the company which manages the Mercator Estate.

If the teen breaks the conditions of his Asbo he could face up to five years in prison.

Ward councillor Andrew Milton said: "Anti-social behaviour has been a serious problem on the estate. I am glad the Asbo has been served and the boy has been named, so residents can report him if he breaches the order.

"I hope people can get on with their lives, which have been made hell. Most people on the estate are good people and they deserve better."

Beleaguered residents on the estate are too scared to talk about the rogue teenager's reign of terror.

Lewisham Mayor Steve Bullock said: "There is no room in Lewisham for this sort of anti- social behaviour.

"Working together with the police we will use all the powers we have to take action against those who blight our neighbourhoods.

"This is a clear demonstration of my commitment to our residents and businesses."
