Cumbria Police say that over the course of April, they have dealt with 30 reported cases of anti-social behaviour in the Egremont and Cleator Moor area. These range from groups of young people causing a nuisance, anti-social use of off-road motorbikes and concerns regarding underage drinking.
A Police spokesperson said:
"Multiple young people have been stopped and spoken with over the course of the month by our Police Community Support Officers and several children have been referred through to our Child Centred Policing Team to work with. Alcohol has been removed whenever found in the possession of someone under the age of 18 and one adult has been issued with a warning after it was identified he supplied alcohol to a person under the age of 18.
"Police will continue to tackle these reported issues of anti-social behaviour and deal appropriately with both young people and adults alike found committing any offences."
Meanwhile, Aaron Hall, from Frizington was sentenced to 12 weeks imprisonment on April 27th for breaching a Criminal Behaviour Order which banned him from entering Cleator Moor for 3 years.
The Police spokesperson added: "We continue to ask the public to report any sightings of Hall, if seen in the Cleator Moor area."
