The continued fight against street drinking and anti-social behaviour will top Thetford Police’s priorities after they were highlighted in a meeting with residents.

Inappropriate use of motorcycles on the Redcastle and Barnham Cross Estates is also to be targeted by officers after a meeting of the Safer Thetford Action Group (STAG) took place on Thursday at the town’s Guildhall.

The meeting saw the force set its three priorities for the coming months after discussions with residents.

Street drinking, cycling and youth anti-social behaviour in King Street topped the list.

Parking issues on Bury Road and HGV problems throughout the town will also be targeted.
