POLICE are holding a series of drop in sessions in Pudsey to discuss the recent “spike” in anti social behaviour in the town.

West Yorkshire Police and Leeds City Council say they have received an increase in reports of young people congregating in areas of the town and committing a series of offences.

Incidents reported so far include throwing stones and missiles, verbally abusing passers by, criminal damage, taking drugs and the illegal use of fireworks.

Police have asked the public to help identify the people responsible for these crimes.

There will be a series of drop in sessions in the town next month where residents can raise concerns about anti-social behaviour and provide police with any information.

Festival of light comes to Pudsey

There will be sessions in Pudsey Library on December 4, 11 and 18 between 11am and 12.30pm.

There will also be sessions held in Pudsey Leisure Centre on the same days from 6pm to 7pm.

People can also report any anti-social behaviour to LASBY@leeds.gov.uk quoting NRT.

Earlier this year Leeds City Councillors were told that there had been a number of incidents reported around the town’s bus station and in some housing estates.
