ASBOs, or Anti-social Behaviour Orders, are an increasingly common way to deal with problems like graffiti, abusive and intimidating language, dropping litter and drunken behaviour. So why are they cropping up in a style blog? Well, UK retailer Next is being threatened with an ASBO by people living near one of its Merseyside stores over its noisy night-time deliveries. The angry residents claim the store is taking deliveries as late as 1am, and that goods are loaded into metal trollies, which make a loud screeching noise as they are dragged across the delivery yard. If successful, this would be the first ASBO issued against a company. 

Next may get an ASBO
