Youngsters causing trouble in Wyre have been warned that police and council staff will ‘pursue all legal options to protect the community’.

A report by the council’s community safety boss, Coun Roger Berry [pictured], said several ringleaders were identified following an investigation into a gang behaving badly over the summer.

He said: “Where the youngsters were younger than 16, their parents have been served with a community protection warning notice. Where [they] were older ... it is considered they are old enough to be responsible for their own actions therefore they were served with a community protection warning notice directly.”
