Action promise over Bingham park problems

A long term plan to deal with anti-social behaviour on a Nottinghamshire park is a priority, police have said.

Wallenfels Park, near the Bird Estate in Bingham, opened last month complete with an adventure playground.

But it immediately saw complaints from nearby residents over noise, traffic and gangs of youths using it at night.

Police said they would be talking to the community and the local authority now that electilons were over, to agree a way forward.

Insp Phil Hallam said: "We have got to make sure we speak with residents to make sure this does not escalate way out of control.

"It could cause an impact on the quality of life of these decent law-abiding people and we want to make sure that does not happen."
