Burhan Uddin, 19, was jailed in March for identical offence

A Neasden teenager has been placed on curfew after he breached the terms of a dispersal zone in the Dudden Hill ward for a second time.

Burhan Uddin, of Elm Way, was convicted of failing to comply with the dispersal order in Neasden just weeks after he was sent to prison for the same offence.

Hendon Magistrates Court sentenced the 19-year-old to the three-week long curfew order following his arrest on April 24.

In March, he was jailed for a day and ordered to pay £220.

A total of 41 people have been arrested since the zone was rolled out on March 1.

In addition, anti-social behaviour has reduced in the area.

PC Philip Moor from Brent Safer Transport Team Said: “Brent Safer Transport Team and Dudden Hill Safer Neighbourhoods Team have been closely working in partnership to increase patrols in Neasden and enforce the dispersal zone.

“This has led to multiple arrests and a noticeable reduction in anti social behaviour which is clear when we speak to local business owners.

“We will continue to ensure anti social behaviour is not tolerated in Neasden.”
