A series of anti social behaviour incidents have been reported by residents on a busy Deepdale road.Advertisement
Those living on St Paul’s Road, in the St George’s ward, have reported incidents of seeing young men walking down the road and kicking cars.
They also said that the smell of cannabis is regularly in the area and claim that the unoccupied Preston City Council Works Department building has been vandalised with smashed windows.
One resident has reported the incidents to both the council and the police.
They said: “Cars have been vandalised on the weekends on several occasions and young people are constantly smoking cannabis and possibly dealing from there.
“The council works building which is unoccupied windows have all been cracked and written on the area has no lighting so people use it and has become somewhat of an eyesore.
“The police and local councillor have been informed but no action has been taken as of yet.
“There are neighbours on the street who have CCTV and you could observe the young people like clockwork of their timings yet police have failed to impact on it.
“The street smells of cannabis on a windy day, litter has become an issue and unwanted characters have been seen looking for left over drugs.”
A spokesperson for Preston City Council said: “We are aware of some superficial vandalism at the St Paul’s Road building and a couple of cracked panes of glass.
“The glass is stabilised with glazing film and no further damage has been found.”
