A man in his 50s had a warrant executed by police at his house in Littleport in relation to ongoing anti-social behaviour.

The section 23 misuse of drugs act warrant was carried out at his address by the community action team.

It comes as officers were in the area “attacking criminality” following a spate of increased speeding, drugs and anti-social behaviour.

Police say that enquiries are still ongoing.

Street pastors, unmarked cars, better enforcement of dispersal orders and more police patrols are among the solutions to make the village safer.

A list of around 30 problems were raised by the public at a community meeting held this summer.

They included an “influx” in comments online, with police saying “public spirit to take back Littleport” is needed.

Community concerns on the list featured glass bottles and broken windows, razor blades, needles, urinating in the street, Harley Memorial, fighting and drag racing.

Drop in surgeries, door to door advice coffee mornings and school visits are planned to help tackle concerns in the area.
