Dispersal order issued for Brymbo to tackle “sudden increase in anti-social behaviour”

A dispersal order will be enforced in the Brymbo area this weekend to help tackle the “sudden increase in anti-social behaviour”.

Police say that a large group of youths have been congregating in Argoed and at the Brymbo Sports and Social Complex, and other areas.

The large groups have been causing intimidation, harassment and nuisance to members of the public as well as criminal damage. Police say the alarm and distress caused has also affected local businesses.

Last weekend Wrexham.com reported that officers had spent two hours dealing with a large group of youths following reports of anti-social behaviour at the pavilion.

At the time the group told police they is “nothing to do in the area”.

Today North Wales Police have confirmed that following reports of anti-social behaviour officers have conducted hi-viz patrols, spoken to the parents and guardians of the youths responsible and attempted to move the youths along.

However, the groups tend to return to an area once officers have left the scene.

As a result a weekend dispersal order covering the area shown on the map will be enforced. It will apply from 5pm on Friday October 20th until 4.59pm Sunday October 22nd.
