TWO people were arrested after returning to an area they were ordered to stay away from hours earlier.

The two had been handed dispersal notices by officers following anti-social behaviour in the Park District yesterday.

A spokesman for Weymouth and Portland Police said: "Earlier today, two local individuals were issued with Section 35 dispersal notices following reports of anti social behaviour in the area of the Park District.

"The individuals were directed to leave the area for 24 hours and warned they may be arrested should they return.

"They have returned and were subsequently arrested."
