Second man sentenced for entering estate Second man sentenced for entering estate

A second man has been sentenced for entering a London housing estate.

In April, urgent measures to tackle antisocial behaviour on Islington's Andover Estate saw 13 people handed injunctions banning them from the area.

Jerrell Green, 20, was arrested on 25 October after returning to the estate. On Tuesday, he was given a 28-day sentence, suspended for one year, by Shoreditch County Court.

The offender joins Anthony Ahmet, 22, of St Albans, who was jailed for 28 days in October after he also entered the estate in breach of his injunction.

Cllr Paul Convery, Islington Council's executive member for community safety, said: "We're on the side of residents, who want less crime and anti-social behaviour in Islington, and we took decisive action to ban a number of people from the Andover estate to tackle local problems.

"If people ignore the ban and return to the estate, they will face arrest, court and prison, as these two cases show. We are keeping a close eye on the area and will enforce the ban."

Islington's East Sector Neighbourhoods Inspector, Richard Stacpoole said: "This is part of an ongoing partnership work with Islington Council to improve the lives of people who live in the Andover Estate.

"We are committed to tackling this issue and reiterate that ASB will not be tolerated."
