Chief Supt Edwards said: “The community of Brunswick should not have to tolerate this disgraceful behaviour, and I will continue to work with partners to provide support and diversionary activities.

“However, when young people persist in committing acts of criminality impacting the lives of good law abiding citizens, my officers will arrest them and will then pursue the criminal justice route.

“In addition to targeting the young people intent on committing criminal acts, I am now also actively seeking to apply for civil orders in relation to their parents.
