Police patrol beaches

First published in News

Police are asking the public to consider others while on local beaches this summer.

Over the past weekend officers from South Ceredigion Neighbourhood Policing Team were on patrol at a beach gathering at Newport Sands, and seized alcohol from a number of underage youngsters.

One driver was issued with a Section 59 warning after driving his vehicle in an antisocial manner on the beach.

PCSO Ben Cole said: “Our message is simple, we’re not here to spoil anybody’s fun but sometimes evening gatherings on our beaches can lead to antisocial behaviour and affect others. Where that happens we will use our powers to ensure that it is dealt with and does not continue.

“It is an offence for anyone under 18 to be in possession of alcohol and it will be seized from them by officers. Similarly drivers who use their vehicles in an antisocial manner and cause danger or alarm to others risk having their vehicles seized.”

Police will be patrolling local beaches over the summer on the lookout for anyone behaving in an antisocial manner but are also asking for help from the public.

Report antisocial behaviour by calling Dyfed-Powys Police on 101. In an emergency call 999.
