Young tearaways targeted at Lyme Regis
Police clampdown on playing field vandals after damage and arson attacks
TACKLING anti social behaviour at the Anning Road playing field in Lyme Regis is to be a police priority.
It topped the list of concerns at a recent Police and Communities Together meeting in the town.
The PACT panel, chaired by John Lello, heard that there had been reports of drinking and drug taking in the area, along with damage and arson at the toilets and general bad behaviour.
The meeting agreed to launch a joint crackdown on the culprits, involving police, the town council, the primary school and Dorset Fire and Rescue Service.
