Devon town order to fight anti-social behaviour

A dispersal order has been granted for a north Devon town in a bid to tackle anti-social behaviour.

Police said Operation Assure would allow them to continue to drive down alcohol-related violence and anti-social behaviour in Barnstaple.

Officers said the order would allow them to disperse people who were being anti-social in the town centre, Seven Brethren and parts of Rock Park.

The order will run from 5 July until 4 January 2012.
