Three men were removed from a busy area in Weymouth as the police crackdown on anti-social behaviour during their 100 Days of Summer operation.

It was reported to police yesterday evening (Wednesday, June 12) that three males were behaving in a drunk and confrontational manner along the esplanade in Weymouth.

Police approached the men and confiscated the alcohol before removing the group from the area.

A spokesperson for Dorset Police said: “Town Centre Neighbourhood Officers have been patrolling Weymouth Esplanade as part of our late turn duties and 100 Days Of Summer operation.

“Following a report of three males behaving in a drunk and confrontational manner we attended and located the group. Alcohol was handed over and confiscated, the three individuals were removed from the area to enable the local residents and businesses to continue their peaceful evening.

“Anti-Social Behaviour, street drinking and confrontational individuals will not be accepted in our seaside town. This commitment to our town centre will continue through into the summer and until the message is received.”
