Exmouth police are cracking down on anti-social behaviour by asking the public to become the ears and eyes of the town.

Officers said an increase in anti-social behaviour in the town centre had prompted police to appeal for help catching the culprits responsible.

Officers want the public to report any youths seen congregating or causing trouble in Exmouth.

The police said building up a catalogue of complaints would help them tackle the problem.

PC Amber Skey said: “There is currently a problem with large numbers of youths congregating and acting in an anti-social manner in and around town.

“Key known areas are Gunfield Gardens, Madeira Walk, The Strand, the bus shelter on Rolle Street, the toilets in London Inn Car Park and by the subway area on Imperial Road.
