alcohol seized by police in Wistaston

Drunken youths plaguing a village near Nantwich are facing a tough police crackdown.

Officers seized large amounts of alcohol (pictured) after they targeted yobs in Wistaston.

It follows a rise in complaints about anti-social behaviour in the area, including vandalism, drunkenness and graffiti.

The operation involved officers on foot and a mobile CCTV van to prevent and deter youths from gathering in the Wistaston and Wistaston Green areas.

As well as seizing alcohol from youths, police issued more than 20 ‘yellow card′ warnings for anti-social behaviour.

PC Dan Sambrook, of Crewe NPU, said: “The influx of officers in the area has prevented large groups of youths from congregating and reduced the number of reports of anti-social behaviour.

“We are committed to tackling the issue and will continue to provide extra enforcement over the coming weekends.”

Officers have also seen a rise in the number of incidents involving youths letting off fireworks in the street.

In the run up to Bonfire Night, police are reminding the public it is illegal for anyone under 18 to buy or use fireworks.

Anyone under 18 found with fireworks in a public place could face a fine, caution or court appearance.
