Police praise responsible actions after trouble-free time in Stamford this Bank Holiday Weekend

Stamford's police inspector has thanked people for their responsible actions in the town centre over the bank holiday weekend.

Insp Gary Stewart said the people that he and other officers spoke with were drinking and behaving responsibly, and pubs were doing their bit to ensure there was no unnecessary trouble.

It follows two weekends of disquiet in Stamford town centre, with more than 100 teenagers gathered on the meadows at one point - many of them underage drinking.

As a result, Insp Stewart had appealed to parents to take responsibility for their children rather than leaving it for the police to pick up the pieces.

A dispersal order is in place in Market Deeping town centre this Friday and Saturday (May 7 and 8) after youths threw fireworks.
