“Officers continue to proactively patrol these areas, and our Youth Diversion Officer has been working with them to address the issue of anti-social behaviour, including contacting the parents of those who’s details have been forwarded in relation to anti-social behaviour.

“If a young person is found to be consuming alcohol in a public place they may be committing an offence and could end up with a formal police disposal. This could impact on future university, college or job applications.

“Parents please ensure you know where your children are and discourage them from any behaviour which is likely to bring them to police attention.

“We would also urge everyone to be mindful of the Regulations: each of us has a personal responsibility to follow them and do everything we can to stop the spread of Covid-19.

“We all have a responsibility to follow the Health Protection Regulations. We will be conducting patrols to encourage everyone to play their part in maintaining a safe social distance to stop the spread of COVID-19.”
