Noise prompts police visit in Sidmouth

PUBLISHED: 10:13 01 February 2012

NOISY revellers prom-pted police to visit Sidmouth’s Manor Road car park on Monday night.

Members of the public complained that several vehicles were being used in an anti-social manner at the site at 9.30pm.

The concerns were over noise not driving.

Officers from the Sidmouth Local Policing Support Team attended and issued advice to the drivers – who then left the car park.

Vigilant members of the public have helped herald a downturn in vehicle-related nuisance behaviour at the spot.

A district council drive to give boy racers their marching orders has seen its officers carry out patrols on Friday and Saturday nights - issuing a warning letter to anyone seen misbehaving.
