POLICE in Darlington have acted to tackle anti-social behaviour in Cockerton after concerns were raised by local people.

Officers patrolling the area on Friday stopped a group of youths and confiscated alcohol, while on Saturday police were called to reports of young people kicking a ball against the window of a café.

On both occasions, officers took the details of the young people who were involved and they will receive a visit from the anti-social behaviour team at Darlington Borough Council in a bid to prevent further bad behaviour.

A police spokeswoman said: “Following concerns raised by members of the community about anti-social behaviour in Cockerton, local police officers have taken positive action to deal with the youths concerned, and to reassure people that anti-social behaviour will not be tolerated.

“Durham Constabulary understands the devastating consequences anti-social behaviour can have within our communities and works together with the council to protect vulnerable and repeat victims and deal with the perpetrators.”

Victims of anti-social behaviour are asked to contact the police on the non-emergency number, 101.

Do you ever get the feeling there are those that are winding on this anti-social behaviour mullarchy! All that is required is ASBC ANTI SOCIAL BEHAVIOUR CURFEW. This means that whilst the parents are absent playing Bingo or drinking, a Curfew means instead of lurking the streets terrorising the aged and disabled and hard working shopkeepers a curfew confines them to smashing up their own home and cars.
