An explosion in anti-social behaviour has left Luton residents feeling ‘like prisoners in their own homes’, a report has revealed.
Beds Police has included a large section of Wigmore, Stopsley and Round Green in an application for a six month dispersal order, which it is hoped will ease rising amounts of anti-social behaviour seen over the last four months.
A Luton Borough Council report on the application states that from February to May anti-social behaviour went up by a third year on year – an epidemic which has left residents “intimidated, anxious, scared and very nervous”.
Among the reported crime are aggression and intimidation ”by males in the area”, drug dealing and use, criminal damage, abuse and threats made to vulnerable residents.
