An issue raised at local PACT meetings by residents about youths causing problems at the town park and in and around Tesco has been resolved.
Along with the park wardens and Tesco security staff some offenders were identified. Tesco staff were of a great help because they were vigilant and actively helped the Police with this problem and in recent months two males have been identified as having bought alcohol for underage youths and have been issued with fixed penalty notices.
One of these males did not buy the alcohol from Tesco but the staff were vigilant of the problem and helped identify the culprit. Tesco is commended for taking an active role in helping the community.
