Peterlee Police said: “Make no mistake, if criminal offences are committed and offenders identified your child may well be arrested.

“Police, working with partner agencies, will escalate identified ASB incidents - this could potentially have an impact on a tenancy.

“The good people of Peterlee do not have to put up with the actions of the few who are causing these issues and Police will deal with all incidents robustly.”
