Dispersal order in Old Leigh

A dispersal order has been put in place in Old Leigh following anti-social behaviour and repeated breaches of the Government’s COVID-19 regulations this afternoon.

The order is in place until 6.30pm tomorrow (Wednesday March 31).

It follows reports of a large group of people congregating along the seafront and behaving anti-socially.

The order has been put in place to prevent crime and disorder and prevent people living in the area being harassed, alarmed or distressed.

It gives officers powers to move anyone believed to be behaving anti-socially from the area.
