Three youths accused of causing trouble on a Liverpool housing estate are being taken to court today in a test of the government's new anti-social behaviour orders, reported BBC Radio 4's Today programme. The case will use powers under the Crime and Disorder Act, which came into force in April and gives local authorities powers to prosecute people who commit a regular nuisance.

This is the first time the powers have been used against teenagers.

An order was issued recently against a Dundee woman described as 'a neighbour from hell'.
