A dispersal order will be active in the Well Lane area of Rothwell from the beginning of December.

The order has been sought to combat reports of anti-social behaviour in the area.

It will run for three months, from Monday, December 3, to Sunday, March 3, and will give police officers and PCSOs the power to move potential troublemakers out of the designated area under Section 30 of the Anti-Social Behaviour Act 2003.

Castle Hill, Market Square, Well Lane, Spring Gardens, Tresham Street, Rothwell Library, the fire station and Rothwell Community Centre all fall within the dispersal zone.
