Rehabilitation order for Blackburn teen who ‘terrorised’ shopkeeper

A TEENAGE racist who ‘terrorised’ an Asian shopkeeper and his staff for more than two years has been sentenced to a year-long rehabilitation order.

The 14-year-old has been banned from going within 100 metres of the Spar Shop in Rothesay Road, Shadsworth, for four years or contacting staff, after he admitted racially abusing them, at Blackburn Magistrates Court.

Peter Wilde, prosecuting, told the court how the youth, who cannot be named for legal reasons, targeted shopkeeper Tarsem Singh and worker Shailesh Patel from March 2008 onwards, throwing eggs and damaging the shutters of their store.
