Sgt Liam Watson told an online question and answer session for Edlington and Warmsworth residents that his team was aware that youths causing anti-social behaviour was a priority for the residents of Warmsworth.

He said: “We are aware of the fire that was ignited near to Guest Lane, and we have been provided with a list of names of those suspected to be involved in ASB in the village.

"Anyone found causing anti-social behaviour will be dealt with robustly by my team.”

He also told residents that he and his officers were acutely aware of the problem of nuisance off-road vehicles in both Edlington and Warmsworth, and said he would urge anyone with any information or intelligence regarding off road bikes to report these to police, or to crimestoppers, online or via phone 0800 555111.

But he was aware of members of the community reporting matters via community facebook pages, rather than the correct channels.

He said all reports needed to be to 101, or 999 it was an emergency, or the police’s online reporting page, unless it was reported directly to a police officer.

"No report means no support, and I would implore all residents to report any incident of crime or anti-social behaviour to us via one of the methods outlined above,” he said.

He also said his team had been involved in the execution of a number of misuse of drugs act warrants on the Royal Estate in Edlington, which had led to the recovery of over £500,000 worth of Cannabis plants.
