On one occasion, youngsters near Rachel Madocks School, in Eagle Avenue, Cowplain, forced traffic to grind to a halt while they played with a swivel chair in the middle of the street, police said.

Officers are also investigating claims youths were taking drugs behind shops in London Road, Waterlooville, following reports of the youngsters '˜acting suspiciously'.

To report anti-social behaviour, call police on 101.'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹
