POLICE will be holding an evening of action at an Ely park to crack down on anti-social behaviour.

Officers will be joined by representatives from the fire service, community safety partnership, Sainsbury’s and local councillors on a walk around Pocket Park.

The Connections Bus will also be at the park.

Residents and young people are being encouraged to attend the event, which will run from 6pm to 9pm on Thursday, May 30.

Community safety officer Sue Loaker said: “We had a few issues reported to us last year around suspected drug and alcohol misuse at the park along with associated anti-social behaviour.

“We hope that by holding this evening of action we can see if there are any ongoing issues and people can come along to raise any concerns they may have.”
