Mr Swire said this week the blight had “created havoc in communities across the region” for “far too long.”

Research revealed there were 5,240 reported incidents of anti-social behaviour across Devon and Cornwall last month.

“It’s time now for a fresh approach that properly supports victims and helps the authorities to act quickly and effectively,” said Mr Swire.

He labelled current tools and powers as “too bureaucratic”.
