POLICE in Banwell are stepping up efforts to control ‘rowdy behaviour’ in the village this month.

Officers received nine calls from residents reporting the problem in the parish from December 14 to Sunday.

In a report to a parish council meeting on Monday, PC Dave Eastham said a small group of teenagers was to blame for much of the anti-social behaviour.

He said police would open talks with parents of the known children and implement Acceptable Behaviour Contracts (ABC) on the offenders if necessary.

They are informal, non-legally binding contracts signed by the young offenders and their parents that usually last for six months.
