A WOMAN has been slapped with a night-time ban on going into the centre of Yeovil.

Darcy Phoenix, 36, of Vincent Place, appeared before South Somerset Magistrates Court, sitting in Yeovil, on Monday.

Under an interim order she is also banned from the Quedam Shopping Centre and two shops.

She was placed before magistrates on the claim that she had "acted, on various dates, in Yeovil and surrounding areas in an anti-social manner."

Although Phoenix's case was adjourned until 2014, the court agreed to issue her with an interim Asbo.

PC Amanda Thomas, of Yeovil police, urged members of the public to report any breaches of the interim order.

She said: "We are feeling positive and with local support reporting any breaches to us, I am sure we will have a good result. We are trying to support local businesses and traders."

The interim order means she is not permitted to remain on retail premises in Yeovil town centre when asked to leave, banned from being in possession of alcohol in a public place and not allowed to enter the Quedam Centre, including its car parks.

Phoenix is also not to enter the town centre between the hours of 7pm and 7am, and is banned from several other places, including McColls and Lidl.

The conditions will last until Saturday, February 8, 2014.
