Constables and Police Community Support Officers reacted swiftly to reports of a small group of youths behaving in an anti-social manner in Hailsham town centre during the late afternoon and early evening of Thursday. (19 September)

The group was broken up and three boys were issued with dispersal orders, excluding them from specific parts of the town for 48 hours and making them liable to arrest if breached.

Sgt Kara Tombling, of Wealden police, said: " Those responsible were mainly in their teens. Anti-social behaviour is not acceptable and so we took positive steps to end the trouble-making and make it clear that this sort of thing will not be tolerated.
