Yobs who have been causing anti-social behaviour in March town centre and West End Park prompted police to take action this weekend.

Cambridgeshire Police have put a dispersal order in place from tonight (Friday) to combat both anti-social behaviour and dangerous cycling in the town.

The three day order covers a huge swathe of the town from the A141 junction with Burrowmoor Road, along to Wisbech Road, Dartford Road, Station Road, St John's Road, Creek Road to the railway line, along the railway line to Silt Road to St Peter's Road up to the High Street and back towards Burrowmoor Road and then along Burrowmoor Road and back to the A141.

A police spokesman explained: "The last couple of weekends have seen a group of individuals who feel that it is acceptable to cycle dangerously on the road and footpaths and also to cause anti-social behaviour around the town centre and park area's.

"In response to this I have authorised dispersal powers under section 34 Anti-social behaviour, crime and policing act 2014 on Friday 7th, Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th December between 3pm and 11.45pm.

"As normal staff have been allocated to patrol this specific area to make sure that the application of the powers given to officers under this authority are used pro-actively and robustly.

"The dispersal order allows officers to remove persons from the area, seize any item in that persons possession that has been or is likely to be used in behaviour that harasses, alarms or distresses members of the public and if the person is under 16 years old to remove them back to their home address.

The spokesman added: "This sort of action is only part of the work that your local team is completing and longer term engagements and disruptions of persons involved in anti social behaviour are already under-way.

"If you are out in the town this weekend to unwind after a long week I'm sure you will have an enjoyable night but if you are out and involved in anti-social behaviour then you can look forward to seeing your local team who will escort you out of the town until you can learn to behave."
