'My Asbo is unjust and draconian'

Help

A man who has spent eight years in and out of prison for repeatedly defying an anti-social behaviour order (Asbo) is seeking to have it overturned.

Simon Frodsham made his 44th appearance in court on Monday for breaching the order, which has banned him from the Lytham St Annes area since 2003.

But he says the Asbo breaches his civil rights and is applying to Blackpool Magistrates' Court to have it lifted.

His solicitor estimates that enforcing the Asbo has cost taxpayers about £2m.
