North Yorkshire Police carried out an evening of action in Colburn last night.

The operation follows a spate of disorder in the town caused by a small number of youths.

Richmondshire and Hambleton special constables joined forces for the proactive exercise.

Ten officers were on patrol in the Colburn and wider Catterick Garrison area to tackle anti-social behaviour and drugs use.

During the evening officers dispersed groups of youths and stopped vehicles.

Police were also called to a fight at McDonalds, with one person detained.

Over the last nine months there have been more than 200 reports of youths behaving in an anti-social way around the Broadway shops area in Colburn, which has also affected Colburn Library, residents of local flats and the Colburn Business Park.
