Three people from Welwyn Garden City have been arrested following a police crackdown on antisocial behaviour.

At around 8pm on Wednesday, officers on patrol arrested a girl, 16, and boy, 17, from Welwyn Garden City on suspicion of obstructing police and a public order offence. Both have been released under investigation while enquiries continue.

Rufaro Sifolongwane, of Lowerfield, was also arrested on the same road and charged with possession of cannabis.

The 22-year-old is set to appear at St Albans Magistrates' Court on Friday, November 22.

Welwyn Hatfield Safer Neighbourhood Team Inspector Wayne Nash said: "We know residents are feeling concerned about young people committing antisocial behaviour in the Woodhall area and we will continue carrying out patrols and making arrests where necessary.
