Police seize alcohol from teenage drinkers in Whitchurch
Police seized a large amount of alcohol from underage drinkers in Whitchurch Park on Friday.
The haul was a result of extra patrols in the area, put in place to tackle problems caused by inebriated youngsters at this time of year.
The Year 11, end-of-school celebrations are recognised by police as an annual issue that has become synonymous with anti-social behaviour in the community.
The confiscated liquor will now be destroyed and letters of warning will be sent to the parents of those students found in possession, to ensure that they are aware of their behaviour.

PCSO Alison Orton, who was involved in the seizure, said: "Although we all understand that these students are pleased to have completed their studies and have finished their school term, it is wholly unacceptable for groups of underage children to drink alcohol to the point of intoxication and affect the peace and continuity of the neighbourhood.
"Where we encounter youths in possession of booze, we will take action as necessary."
