Nine young people in Aylsham have been positively dealt with by Beat Manager PC Shepherd with the assistance of response colleagues and the Broadland Operational Partnership Team (OPT).
ASB intervention letters have been sent out to the youths involved who were found inside different derelict properties, including the former St Michaels Hospital site on Cawston Road. Damage was caused by starting fires at these locations during April and May.
PCSO Tracey Frost, of Broadland OPT, commented “We would advise parents to have an awareness of where their children are and what they are doing at all times.
Entering these sites is inherently dangerous as the structures are generally unsafe and parts of the buildings could collapse at any time. There is also a risk from asbestos.
These types of incidents and behaviour show a lack of respect for others and greatly affect the quality of life of people living within the community”.
