POLICE have issued a Dispersal Order after two groups of around 60 youths congregated on Bennetts Rec at Padgate, Warrington.

They shouted abuse towards the officer as they ran away. Their behaviour has ultimately ruined it for the rest of those who genuinely want to spend time with friends playing football and listening to music.

If anyone knows their child/group of friends are on there , it would be wise to bring them home. Patrols and monitoring will continue throughout the weekend.
