14-year-olds escorted home by police in Welwyn Garden City.


Last night police officers were busy escorting teenagers home after catching them misbehaving in Woodhall.

At 9.30pm the officers witnessed several 14-year-olds jumping on bins, seats and shouting in the street.

In a Neighbourhood Watch message to residents, Sergeant Stephen Hynes said: “All will be subject to reports to the council antisocial behaviour team.

“And for those who ran away, we know who you are too.

“It’s all captured on video.

“Several unhappy parents not pleased to learn their children have had to be brought home in my van - this will continue as long as the problems do.”

The previous night (Monday, February 5) police were called to Chambers Grove at 4.54pm to reports of a disturbance involving a group of youths.

Two teenagers were arrested, one has been charged with possession of a bladed article, namely a knife.
