“We have dealt with this by speaking to residents over their concerns, increasing visibility in the area and speaking to parents of those identified as responsible.” The force added that a child was found with an egg following a stop and search, which was promptly confiscated.

They said officers saw youths throw food items at a window and caught part of the group involved. Police made them apologise to the resident and clean their window. “We also educated the youths on the potential consequences that targeting people in this way can cause,” they added.
