Shadow home secretary Jack Straw this week unveiled proposals to give councils and the police new powers to tackle anti-social neighbours.

Under the plans, councils and senior police officers would be able to apply for community safety orders to restrain anti-social behaviour.

CSOs could include curfews, exclusion orders and restrictions on approaching individuals.

Mr Straw first floated CSOs as an anti-racism device when he addressed the local authority working group on anti- social behaviour in July.

Launching Labour's policy document, Protecting our communities, Mr Straw said his plans would provide 'much- needed relief for the thousands of victims of harassment and intimidation in their own homes'.
