Parking tickets were issued by police while they patrolled around Wisbech aiming to crack down on street drinking.

Officers often patrol these parts of town to crack down on street drinking and drug use. During this time they also ticketed two cars which were parked on double yellow lines.

A spokesperson for Policing Fenland said: “We are aware of the community's concerns around this issue, and have been regularly doing these enforcement patrols to help combat the issue.”

Officers have promised to keep visiting areas of concern in the town, which members of the public can report on by filling out a community survey.
