Moorlands dispersal orders reviewed

The Chief Inspector for the Moorlands says he has reviewed dispersal orders.

They were granted for 48 hours earlier this week, under section 34 of the Anti-social behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014, following an increase of anti-social behaviour.

It included reports of problems with groups congregating, excessive noise, litter, people going to the toilet in public and inconsiderate parking in rural locations.

Chief Inspector Mark Thorley has today (5 June) wrote on Twitter: "Today I reviewed the need for dispersal orders in the Moorlands, Dovedale and surrounding areas will be ended as issues have reduced. The area will continue to be part of a patrol plan so should similar issues resurface I will consider the need to reauthorise.

"The dispersal order for Werrington due to youth ASB is to remain for the weekend as there are still some issues unfortunately. My team will be in the area seeking to identify those causing or likely to cause ASB, issuing orders to leave the area where appropriate."
