Police in Calne seized alcohol from several underage youths drinking in the town centre this weekend.

On Saturday police were on a routine foot patrol, targeting the area round Castlefields Park, and confiscated alcohol from a boy and girl at 8pm.

Later, in the centre of town at 10pm, a volunteer for Calne CCTV spotted a group of youths near to Bank Row. The teenagers hid some of the alcohol in the bushes, but the operator was able to alert the police to this. The alcohol was confiscated and disposed of later at the police station.

PSCO Mark Cook said police had kept a close eye on the area at the weekend as teenagers were going back to school.

He said: “We’d like to say thank you to the Calne CCTV for their help.”
