Incidents reported to officers have included smashed windows, graffiti, vandalism, and intimidating behaviour.

Police Sergeant Russell Minty said: “We know that any increase in anti-social behaviour involving youths in our local communities causes concern.

“For this very reason, I am appealing to parents to assist us in taking an interest into where their children have been and who they are with.

“Increased patrols are in place to tackle this issue and take action against those responsible.”

Anyone with any concerns should call police on 101 or speak to any police officer. Alternatively, information can be passed anonymously via the charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
