A Section 34 dispersal order in Fishwick is in force for another night.


Preston Police have extended the order, which gives them the power to ask people to leave the area after recent anti-social behaviour.

The order is in place from 6pm tonight (Friday) until 6pm in Sunday July 7.

It will be reviewed over the weekend and further orders will be implemented if necessary.

Insp Patrick Worden, of Preston Police, said: “Anti-social behaviour covers a range of offences and can involve harm to an individual, to the wider community or to the environment, leaving victims feeling harassed, alarmed or distressed.

“We understand that this can have a profound impact on victims and how safe they feel in their neighbourhood. We are committed to tackling this type of crime.

“Following recent anti-social behaviour in the New Hall Lane area we have decided to enforce a further two-day dispersal order. If necessary, further dispersal orders will be authorised in the area.”
