YOUTHS breaching lockdown restrictions on the all-weather pitch at Broomfield’s Leisure Centre in Appleton scaled new heights to evade police on Friday evening.
A police spokesperson said: “Appleton parents, if your kids are out this evening do us a favour, give them a ring and get them home.
“A large group just made off from officers at the astroturf on Broomfield’s by scaling the fence which was quite impressive but ultimately very dangerous!
“A fall from the top of there could be fatal and nobody wants to see that. Swearing at officers isn’t very nice either.”
Meanwhile in nearby Lymm, where there have been numerous incidents of anti-social behaviour involving youths during lockdown there was a high visibility foot patrol around Sow Brook, Rushgreen and Lymm Village. A few youths had to be moved off Lymm Cross but there were no other issues.
