Police can remove any troublemakers.

Orders were made in Corby earlier this year after large groups of youngsters hanging around the George Street and Corporation Street areas of the town caused issues.

Detective Inspector Steve Watkins said: "Officers have the power to require persons to leave if acting in an anti-social or aggressive way."
