Anti-social behaviour hits Alcester

Stratford Editorial 2nd Jun, 2016 Updated: 28th Oct, 2016

ANTI-SOCIAL behaviour has become an increasing problem in Alcester in recent weeks.

Youths have been running riot through the town causing damage and racers have been speeding down the roads.

There have been five reports of anti-social behaviour in the last week alone.

Fences surrounding a building site were pulled down so youngsters could use the unfinished skate ramps on Jubilee Fields on Sunday. Youths have also been causing trouble for police after they went through safety fencing and refused to come out.

The youngsters were spotted on Gunnings Road by officers at about 8.30pm on Friday and would not leave the area.

More people arrived at the scene and became abusive to the police.

The barriers then had to be moved so police cars could get onto the car park.

Police were also called on Wednesday after reports of youths shouting and swearing at members of the public around 4.30pm on Wednesday.

The person who called police said they thought the youths may have been smoking cannabis.

But it is not just youngsters causing problems in the town.

A car was seen speeding through Alcester and wheel spinning on Castle Road around 9pm on Wednesday while a motorbike was seen racing up and down Arden Road on Saturday about 10pm.
