The Crime and Disorder Act 1998 defines anti-social behaviour as acting:
"in a manner that caused or was likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress to one or more persons not of the same household as himself".
That means that behaviour by a person who does not live with you, which causes you to feel alarmed, distressed or harassed could be classed as anti-social behaviour.
Anti-social behaviour can take many forms, including playing loud music in the early hours of the morning, graffiti and vandalism, offensive and threatening behaviour, harassment and intimidation, fly-tipping and fly-posting.
As anti-social behaviour covers a range of behaviours there are a number of agencies who can respond to try and stop it. This can lead to confusion over knowing who to report what to.
