Tackling antisocial behaviour

Have your say

A CRACKDOWN on antisocial behaviour has been launched in a village.

Four people have been arrested and a number of others issued with warning notices in the operation in Shotton Colliery.

Neighbourhood wardens from Durham County Council and police officers and PCSOs have increased patrols in the area.

Three people were arrested on suspicion of public order offences and a fourth in connection with criminal damage to a bus.

Eight people were given warning notices for antisocial behaviour while driving a vehicle.

Inquiries are also continuing into a number of other incidents.

Coun Lucy Hovvels, Durham County Council’s cabinet member for safer and healthier communities, said they were “very pleased with the results so far”.

Witnesses to antisocial behaviour can contact Durham Constabulary on 0345 60 60 365.
