A police clampdown on anti-social behaviour in the borough of Great Yarmouth has led to officers disposing of cans of lager from youngsters suspected to be under 18.

Great Yarmouth Police’s Twitter account says a patrol disposed of the alcohol due to suspected underage drinking.

It also says that the police are still focussing on tackling antisocial behaviour in Gorleston by youths.

The high profile clampdown on anti-social behaviour crack in the town was prompted by numerous complaints from members of the public about irresponsible cycling.

Long-distance wheelies towards oncoming traffic are one of the main problems.

As of February 20 youths have been dealt with by the police via community resolution or prosecutions.

The Great Yarmouth police tweet said: “Officers in the #Gorleston area continue to tackle anti-social behaviour involving youths.

“Patrols last week led to alcohol being disposed of in #Belton due to suspected underage drinking and ASB.”
