“What this result shows is that we will pursue offenders and we will robustly apply for orders to manage and prevent any future offending in order to make our communities safer.

“My teams work very hard with our communities and I would encourage anyone who is a victim of anti-social behaviour to contact their local safer neighbourhood team.”

This week (July 3 to 9) is Anti-Social Behaviour (ASB) Awareness Week and West Mercia Police is urging members of the public not to suffer in silence if they experience ASB.
