Police have warned they will crack down on “regular” anti-social behaviour and criminal damage causing “upset” at a multi-story car park.

Officers acknowledge that residents in Chippenham have been left frustrated and upset after repeated instances of anti-social behaviour at Sadlers Mead Car Park, near the train station.

The force warned they will be carrying out regular patrols of the area and using CCTV evidence to clam down on any offenders.

“I’d like to reassure the local community that we are carrying out regular patrols of the area both day and night and the CCTV system in place at the site is proving to be extremely effective in helping us to identify offenders.”

Police recently launched a CCTV appeal to locate two teenagers in connection with criminal damage at the car park.

Following this a 14-year-old boy was identified and admitted to causing the damage, he has since helped clean the stairwell in the facility as part of a community resolution scheme.

PC Jenkins added: “I hope (this community resolution) will act as a deterrent to any future incidents.”
