No More Teen Discrimination

A group of Clacton students are so fed up of teenagers being labelled hoodies and yobs they've decided to take matters into their own hands.

'Teenagers Against Discrimination' is a new group set up by pupils at Clacton Coastal Academy and they're hoping to get wider local - even national - support.

Daniel Smith who's a founding member told Heart: "We've been learning about discrimination of all groups (at college).  We briefly covered teenagers and ironically, a few days later, we went to the shop and we were chucked out of it 'cos of our age - which was obviously a bit of a surprise to us.  We was moaning about it between us and then we just had this idea ... actually why shouldn't we get a group out there that can support teenagers."

They want to tackle things like limits on how many schoolchildren can go into a shop at any one time and mosquito buzzers - devices deisgned to annoy youngsters by sending out a sound that only under 25's can hear.  It's something that has already been trialled at Manningtree Train Station in a bid to reduce anti-social behaviour.
