Two teenagers from Lyneham have been questioned by police following public order offences in Chippenham last weekend.

Police were called to the town centre shortly before the 10pm curfew for licensed premises on October 17 following a number of reports of anti social behaviour and public order.

Due to the number of people in the area, officers issued a Section 35 dispersal order which meant those in the area had to leave immediately.

At the time, no arrests were made and no fixed penalty notices were issued but police issued images gleaned from CCTV footage to help identify some of those involved.

Since then, a 17-year-old boy and a 19-year-old man, both from Lyneham, have been interviewed in relation to the disorder.

Police say they are now liaising with the Crown Prosecution Service in relation to the incident.

Sgt John Brixey said: “We are making progress with our investigation and enquiries remain ongoing. At the weekend, we ensured we had additional resources available and increased patrols in the area to ensure we did not see a repeat of the previous week and we were pleased to see everyone was acting responsibly and adhering to social distancing where possible.

“It remains really important that we continue to adhere to the covid legislation in place for the area – we understand it is difficult and it is a different way of socialising than we have all become accustomed to, but we must all play our part to protect one another. The way we act now will impact upon any further restrictions implemented in the coming weeks and months.”
