Guernsey parents urged 'to set boundaries'

Parents have been urged to keep track of their children over the summer holidays by Guernsey's crime reduction advisor.

Andy Goodall said parents could help cut instances of juvenile crime while the schools were closed.

He said: "We don't have a great amount of juvenile crime, but it tends to rise during the holiday periods."

He recommended parents made sure they knew where youngsters were, who they were with and what they were doing.

Mr Goodall said: "I'd like to think the weather will brighten up and we can all enjoy the holidays

"However, if possible, set some boundaries. Make sure you know what time they're coming home."
