A day of action to get to grips with life on the Littleham estate has seen police complete their rounds to 650 households to tackle residents' problems, big or small.Officers met partner agencies including District and County Councils services, Devon Fire and Rescue and local employers this week to discuss May's Littleham spring clean. Feedback from residents identified anti-social behaviour and traffic issues as major concerns - as police collated hundreds of interviews and promised the public they were on hand to help.Exmouth neighbourhood beat team leader Sergeant Nick Southern said after Tuesday's meeting: "This is a continuation of community work for us, and hopefully what we have done is proven to the community that if they have concerns we will help get things done."Littleham beat manager PC Sallyanne Southern added: "We have the partnership contacts, it is not just police issues people can talk to us about. We now expect residents to keep up their end of the bargain and engage with us." Youth issues are now a priority for officers seeking to control any anti-social behaviour. New goalposts will provide distraction at the Crescent and help clear teens from loitering at the junior play area. Exmouth neighbourhood police team is available on (08452) 777444.
