Fourteen youths have been banned from the Ely leisure village in relation to incidents of anti-social behaviour in the area.

Since the ban was issued on May 10 there have been no further calls for service relating to anti-social behaviour.

It comes after youngsters were banned from the McDonalds there for unacceptable behaviour in February.

Sergeant Ash Godfrey said at the time: “We attended in response to a report on Sunday (Feb 4) evening and we have been able to identify a number of specific individuals who have been behaving unacceptable.

“These individuals will be banned from the restaurant and we will support the management team at McDonalds enforcing that.

“Additionally we are looking to the Public Order Act 1986 and where criminal offences have been disclosed, there will be robust consequences.

“The leisure park remains a safe and family friendly location in Ely and partner agencies including the police, the district council and local businesses are working together to ensure that it stays that way.
