Police say thanks for help over Churchill Avenue ASB


Police in Horncastle have thanked members of the public for their response to an appeal to combat anti social behaviour in the Churchill Avenue area.

Residents had complained about a number of issues - including a quad bike being ridden at night without lights.

Police say information from the public is helping identify culprits and investigations are on-going.

They add the area is being patrolled on a regular basis.

Patrols are being stepped up in Wragby after reports of vandalism and anti social behaviour.

The bowls club at Dove Park was targeted. The bowling green and signs were damaged.

In addition, a door was damaged in the Market Place. Youths have been seen loitering in the area.

Anyone with information should contact 101 or PCSO Nigel Wass (tel: 07939 312724).

Police are also promoting a county wide campaign to combat drink-driving over the festive period.

The word ‘DRINK’ can be sent by text to 80800, along with the registration number and name of anyone suspected of drink driving.

An appeal has also gone out to landowners to help keep roads clear of mud.

Police have received complaints about the condition of roads in rural areas, including Belchford. They advise drivers to take extra care.
