Police have stepped up efforts to clamp down on anti-social behaviour and underage drinking in Wymondham town centre.

Following increasing concerns raised by residents, officers from Wymondham Safer Neighbourhood Team (SNT) carried out high visibility patrols and monitored CCTV cameras throughout Friday evening to try to catch the culprits.

The operation resulted in five people being issued with notices which banned them from the area for 48 hours, two people were given warnings for possession of alcohol and one person was issued with an �80 fine for supplying alcohol to someone under the age of 18.

Officers also attended the One Stop shop where a 16-year-old boy was detained by police for causing anti-social behaviour. He was subsequently banned from the town centre and returned to his parents.
