My Brother saw this sign (above left) in Brick Lane, East London whilst buying Kaya.
This sign is put up in areas which are problem spots for anti-social behaviour and gives the police the power to take action as they see fit.
Typical anti-social behaviour might include:
- being rude to members of the public
- abandoning cars
- breaking the peace
- defecating/urinating in public
- drug dealing/consumption of controlled recreational drugs
- drunken behaviour
- fare evasion
- littering/fly tipping/dog fouling
- noise pollution
- urban exploration
- vandalism/criminal damage
