Police are increasing patrols in Clayton after villagers complained of teenagers causing mayhem.

People living and working in the area, including butcher John Summers, said youths have been throwing dog muck and bottles at people and cars, with problems increasing in recent weeks. Inspector Andrew Croasdale of the North Bradford Neighbourhood Policing Team said: “We will be putting increased patrols in place around the park area. The team has issued several anti-social behaviour warnings, and if their offending behaviour does not cease we will look to move towards full anti-social behaviour orders, or arrests where appropriate.”
