A boy aged two has become the youngest Briton ever to be threatened with an Asbo.

Lennon Poyser received the warning along with his sisters Olivia, five, and four-year-old Megan, after neighbours complained about their behaviour.

The three tiny tearaways have been accused of verbally abusing adult residents and damaging property.

But mother Shelly Hubbard, 24, claims her children are physically incapable of the crimes they have been accused of.

Officers said Lennon, who still struggles to walk, had been kicking footballs at residents’ windows – over a 7ft-high wooden fence.

Mrs Hubbard, of Lincoln, said: ‘I couldn’t believe what I was hearing. They were accusing my tiny son of being an instigator of anti-social behaviour. It’s ridiculous.

‘When he’s out playing in the park he’s preoccupied with his sister’s push chair and children’s book In the Night Garden. He’s the furthest you get from a hell-raiser.

‘He does kick a football but it’s tiny and plastic and blows back to him in the wind. The very notion of him being able to kick a proper football over a 7ft fence is laughable.’

    I expect to see several more posts from tomorrows Sunday Sport in here.

    Just another example of why I don’t have a lot of confidence in government, any government, and don’t want to make any of them all powerful with its nose in everything.

    And once again, people are ready to comment without having even read the story.

    ‘It has since been brought to our attention that the letter sent in error was received by a family with a child of two years of age, this was clearly not intended and we apologise for any distress this may have caused.’

    The boy looks like a true hooligan (just kidding) 🙂

    I agree with #3.

    …And the neighbors are complete idiots if they filed a complain against this sweet baby boy.

    Can’t they just send him to Australia? Then he could work in the mines or carve out a sewer thru solid rock until he is of age to join the Army?

    Isn’t that what they do to ASBO’s?

    Is it just me, or is the whole idea of an “anti-social behavior order” absurd? Who’s to define anti-social? Wouldn’t kicking a ball against a neighbor’s window be considered either Disturbing the Peace or vandalism?

    It sounds like a step towards thought control. Can’t wait to see City-17 pop up in Europe sometime soon.

    I see Mr Fusion has actually read the article. The police have admitted an error in this ASBO letter. What I find also dismaying is that they sent several such complaints to various families in the neighborhood. Apparently, they choose to threaten multiple families on the estate with loss of their homes rather than investigate and actually determine who the offending youths are.

    #14, ‘dro,

    If you had of read the article, as you sun yourself on one of Havana’s famed beaches, sipping a delicious rum and coconut juice over ice, you would realize Nimby is correct.

    Pedro, the problem is huge! Your mind is small.

    I don’t know about this. Might be the real life
