ANTI-SOCIAL behaviour and underage drinking in Seaton top residents' concerns, according to a police survey.

The concerns were highlighted during a Police and Communities Together (PACT) meeting.

Respondents said Friday and Saturday nights were particularly prone to anti-social behaviour, particularly in Fore Street, Harbour Road, Windsor Garderns and the area around The Grove nightclub.

The main areas of concern for underage drinking are in Seafield Gardens, Windsor Gardens, Cliff Field Gardens, the seafront, and around the skateboard park.

Police said they had responded with operations, such as on the rave night at The Grove.

They added the Neighbourhood Beat Team regularly patrol the main problem areas for underage drinking. They will also be working with Devon and Cornwall Police Licensing officers and Trading Standards to make it difficult for youngsters to buy alcohol in the area.

Driving issues, fog following and youth issues were also marked as priorities respectively.
