Members of Attleborough Safer Neighbourhood Team have increased their presence around the Recreation Ground and Bowls Club in the town to address anti-social and criminal damage issues.

Officers have given youngsters words of advice about their behaviour and warning letters from Breckland Council and Norfolk Police have been sent to parents informing them about their children acting inappropriately within the neighbourhood.

Police have issued two warning notices to young motorists who were caught driving in an anti-social manner in the Connaught Hall car park, Attleborough, and the Banham Community Centre car park. Two young people have been issued with Acceptable Behaviour Contracts.

In addition, speeding drivers were targeted in North Lopham over the last two months, where speed checks were carried out in The Street. Seventeen drivers were issued with fixed penalty notices and 37 drivers were given verbal warnings.

The SNT will continue to target anti-social behaviour at the recreation ground and St Mary's churchyard in Attleborough over the next few months.
