Police have increased patrols in Chatteris to clamp down on anti-social behaviour after a BB gun was fired at people.

Cars and mopeds have been driving dangerously along the High Street before gathering at the Furrowfields Car Park.

Last month officers received three reports of a BB gun being fired twice in the direction of people near The George Hotel, in High Street, and in London Road.

A resident of London Road also reported pellets causing damage to windows at his home.

No one has been injured but several complaints have been received this summer.

Sgt Jason Hunns said: “Tackling anti-social behaviour is a priority for the force and we will not tolerate behaviour that affects local people in this way.

“We have increased patrols in the area and inquiries are ongoing to catch those responsible.

“I would urge anyone who has witnessed any incidents or has any information, to contact police. We need to know exactly where it’s happening and when in order to target it most effectively.”

Anyone with information should contact Sgt Richard Lugg, at March Police Station, on 101, or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.
