'New dispersal order will be placed on Stamford Meadows if necessary'
Stamford's police inspector has warned that dispersal orders could be used again to allow police to clear rowdy groups from The Meadows.
The area was subject to a police dispersal order last weekend in response to large groups of teenagers and young adults congregating and behaving in an anti-social manner during the warm evenings.
It gave police the power to send people away for a specified amount of time to reduce the likelihood of crime and disorder taking place.
