TEENAGERS in Caister have been banned from buying eggs and tomato ketchup in a bid to cut anti-social behaviour.

Several residents in the Charles Close area of the village have reported ketchup being squirted at cars and homes.

Norfolk Police has asked supermarkets in Caister to challenge youths trying to buy sauces in squirty bottles or eggs.

And since the agreement came into force two weeks ago no more complaints have been received.

Sgt Andy Brown said squirting ketchup was not a criminal act but it could be possible to bring charges of criminal damage if paintwork was damaged on homes or vehicles.
