BUDLEIGH Salterton police believe an increase in anti-social behaviour committed in the town last month was down to bored youths.

Officers said the behaviour coincided with the school holidays and was down to 'over exuberance'.

Police community support officer Malcolm Maguire said: "The usual number of teenagers who congregate in the town increased with people coming across from Exmouth, Lympstone, Newton Poppleford and Sidmouth.

"Strong words of advice have been issued regarding current and future conduct and the implications of further measures if reports of this nature continue.
