Have your say

POLICE arrested three teenagers and issued 16 letters to parents following a crackdown on anti-social behaviour.

Officers carried out high-visibility patrols and had plain-clothed officers walking the streets after residents complained about the way young people were behaving in Model Village, Creswell.

A 17-year-old was arrested for throwing stones at a police car and picking up a fence post to use to intimidate a rival gang. He was charged with attempted criminal damage and a public order offence.

Another 17-year-old was arrested to prevent a breach of the peace after he was aggressive and abusive towards officers.

A 13-year-old boy from Clowne was also arrested for breaching bail conditions after he was found in Creswell after his 6pm curfew.
