Herts Police has said it has made tackling vehicle antisocial behaviour at Moneyhole car park a "policing priority".

Numerous Welwyn Garden City residents have complained about boy racers with “beefed up” cars motoring around the area, a problem that some claim has gone on for years.

A police spokeswoman told the WHT: “Tackling vehicle antisocial behaviour at Moneyhole playing fields/car park has recently been made a policing priority in partnership with the local council.

“Through proactive patrols officers have recently identified a number of vehicles being driven in an antisocial manner and warning letters have been sent to the registered owners.”

In 2010, the borough council threw out proposals asking it to fund a £12k electronic barrier at the park’s entrance to help tackle yobbish behaviour.

A committee report at the time stated the council was unconvinced that a barrier would solve the problem, as misuse of the pressure pads would still allow vehicles to enter the park.
