Moorlands Police appeal for information following anti-social behaviour in Blythe Bridge

Moorlands Police are appealing for information following a number of reports of anti-social behaviour (ASB) in Blythe Bridge.

Throughout the last few weeks, officers have had separate reports of young people causing disruption and distress amongst residents and businesses in the area.

At around 4pm on Friday 29th March, a group of boys and girls, described as being around 11 or 12-years-old, refused to leave a hair salon and were reportedly climbing on roofs and being aggressive with staff in the area.

A separate report on Saturday 30th March involved a group of youths, roughly between 16 and 18-years-old, knocking over wheelie bins on Wesley Street.

Other behaviour that has been reported includes damaging road signs and trespassing.

Inspector Karen Cooke, from the Moorlands local policing team, said: “We take the concerns of our communities extremely seriously and have been investigating the reports and speaking to people to find out more.

“Tackling the issues that matter most to local people and businesses is a priority for neighbourhood officers across Staffordshire. We encourage anyone who has been affected by ASB or those with concerns to report them to us on 101 or through Live Chat on our website.

“Officers are continuing to patrol the area, carry out enquiries to find out who is responsible and take the most proportionate action against those who are causing alarm within our communities”.
