TEENAGERS drinking, smoking and taking drugs in a village outside Weston are causing a headache for residents.
People living in Elborough Village have voiced concern over the gatherings of youngsters on The Green on Friday and Saturday nights.
Brian Newey, of Elborough Residents’ Association, raised the matter at a meeting of Hutton Parish Council on Monday night.
He said: “The problem is approaching the groups as it can be scary doing it on your own.
“But we want to confront this, either by going to the police or finding more interests for young people in our community.”
Members of Hutton Parish Council agreed more needed to be done for young people in the area, but cited a lack of parental support for the community not having a youth club.
The council, which is to incorporate Elborough Village under boundary changes next year, advised the group to contact police on the matter.
