Anti-social behaviour around a North Walsham car park continues to be a policing priority in the town.
Dangerous driving and vehicles congregating at the Midland Road car park, particularly after midnight, were highlighted by the public at a recent Safer Neighbourhood Team meeting.
Sgt Kersty Brooks said police had stepped up patrols in the area. Two people had been given official warnings for driving in a an anti-social manner and one fixed penalty notice issued for obstruction
A survey among local residents also felt the removal of a bench at the junction of Norwich Road and A149 would help. A meeting with the car park owners, North Norfolk District Council, was being arranged to discuss the issue, which remained a policing priority for the next period too - along with anti-social behaviour, under-age drinking and criminal damage at Pigney's Wood, and parking on dropped kerbs in North Walsham town centre.
