As a result, the Diss police team will be focusing its efforts on tackling anti-social behaviour in the town centre, around Shelfanger village hall and the anti-social use of vehicles at Vinces Road.
Diss SNT Sgt Dave Sutton said: “We are aware of the increase in complaints about anti-social behaviour and criminal damage in the town centre which was reiterated by members of the public at the meeting on Thursday at the Corn Hall.

The Waveney Valley SNAP is a public meeting that offers people the chance to meet and discuss any issues they may have with their local policing team and other partner agencies. The next meeting will be held on Thursday, December 11 at the Apollo Club, Mendham Lane, Harleston.
