Have your say

Police have been stamping down on anti-social behaviour in Bourne following problems in recent weeks.

After receiving several complaints of anti-social behaviour centred around The Centre @ Elsea Park community centre on Sandown Drive, in Bourne, The Bourne Neighbourhood Policing team, working in conjunction with the Elsea Park Community Trust and South Kesteven District Council community safety team, have seized a motorbike from a rider using it in an anti-social manner.

Police also issued a warning to another moped rider.

Police have issued unacceptable behaviour warnings to a 15 year-old youth from Bourne and an 18 year-old from the Morton area following an incident on September 2 outside the community centre.

In a separate incident on the same evening, youths were reported on a roof of a shop in North Street in Bourne town centre.

Six 16 year-olds were spoken to by police and issued anti-social behaviour warnings.

On Tuesday police received numerous calls regarding people selling door to door in the Morton and Billingborough area.

The calls from the public resulted in three men having their goods seized and being reported by the police for selling door to door without a pedlars certificate.

If you experience anti-social behaviour in your area, police are encouraging residents to call them on the non-emergency 101 phone number to help them combat problems in the area.
