Civil injunctions have been obtained against Laura Wenn, 27, of Blackfriars Road, and Lauren Wilson, 23, of Dobby Drive, following a county court hearing last week.
The injunctions were granted by consent from the two women, following a violent assault of a male at King's Lynn Bus Station on 22 March 2018.
The injunctions stipulate that the defendants must not:
- Enter the King’s Lynn Bus Station as defined by a red border and red hatching shown on the map above
- Use foul or abusive language, rude or offensive hand gestures within hearing or sight of any person within the town of King’s Lynn as defined by a red border shown on the map below
- Act in an aggressive or in a violent manner towards any person within the borough of King’s Lynn & West Norfolk.
The power of arrest is attached to condition 1, 2 and 3.
Cllr Ian Devereux, Borough Council of King's Lynn & West Norfolk cabinet member for Environment, said: "These injunctions are the result of partnership working with the operational partnership team. The kind of behaviour witnessed at the bus station will not be tolerated and we will work with our police partners and other agencies to tackle this issue. The two women are not allowed in the bus station area at all and must not act aggressively or violently towards anyone within the borough area."
The order has been secured thanks to the close working relationship between the police and the council through the West Norfolk Operational Partnership Team.
The injunctions will remain in force until 5:59pm on 26 April 2020 unless it is revoked before then by further order of the court.
