A man who posted more than 80 videos of himself and others apparently committing crimes on Google's YouTube video-sharing website has been banned from uploading any more clips or images of himself.

Speeding, taking drugs, setting off fireworks in a wheelie bin and refusing to pay a taxi fare were among the offences that Andrew Kellett is alleged to have committed in clips posted on the site. In response to his antics, Leeds Magistrates' Court issued him with an Anti-Social Behaviour Order (Asbo) that prevents him posting any more videos or images of his activities.

Kellet, who was called "Leeds' dumbest criminal" by a Leeds Councillor, claimed the ban restricted his freedom of speech and that he was simply an innocent bystander recording events.

If he breaches the terms of the Asbo, Kellet may face an immediate jail sentence.
