Police dealt with several teenagers who were misbehaving in Welwyn Garden City town centre.

One drunk 14-year-old was detained in Howardsgate on Friday night (December 28) in handcuffs after refusing to give police his details. Another teenager was taken home by his parents, who thought he was staying at a friend’s house.

Police also seized newly purchased wine and beer and poured it down a drain.

A Neighbourhood Watch statement said: “Follow-up work will happen. Can you please check your children are where they say they are and not causing these problems?

“This behaviour in Welwyn Garden City will stop.”
