FED-UP neighbours in the Callon and Ribbleton areas of Preston have welcomed a court order for a pair of tearaway twins.
Ellie and Morgan Cairns, 14, from Callon, have become the first children in Lancashire to be given an anti-social behaviour injunction, banning them from swearing, spitting and abusing people in their area.
The court order follows a reign of terror on the Callon estate, with the twins ringleaders of a gang that subjected long-suffering residents in Callon and Ribbleton to a campaign of racist abuse and nuisance behaviour.
The family had tried to stop the press identifying the girls but the Evening Post won a legal challenge on Wednesday to prevent reporting restrictions being placed on the case.
One Evening Post reader, using the online handle Crimson Tide, posted: “Hopefully the resident of Callon are happy with this good result.
“Extremely good work by the police thanks to PC Hadi for his involvement and a great result.”
Reader Lavender Lou added: “Name and shame – good on you Lancashire Evening Post.
“Should be done all the time, then the families may make them behave.”
