Officers says they will not tolerate anti social behaviour which affects the community

Police have issued a fresh warning to young troublemakers in Colyton that anti social behaviour will not be tolerated.

During the past few months officers have been working with a small group of youths and their families to address a number of “issues”.

PC Steve Speariett said as a result one youth has been served with an anti-social behaviour contract while five others had been served with first stage anti-social letters and two with second stage ones.

He added: “Whilst we will encourage young people to be out and about, we will not tolerate any anti-social behaviour which affects the community.”
