More police patrols in Bournemouth at half-term

Police in a Dorset town are stepping up patrols this week - because it is half-term.

Dorset Police said extra police and community support officers would be available in Bournemouth to respond to anti-social behaviour.

The force said it did not expect any problems during the half-term but was taking "necessary precautions" to prevent any from happening.

The patrols are being focused on the north area of the town.
