Police have issued four community protection warnings after alcohol fuelled anti-social behaviour.

Yesterday officers from the Cleveland Police football operations unit and the Hartlepool Community Safety Team issued the community protection warnings to four men aged 24, 25, 30 and 55 in Hartlepool in a direct response to their continued alcohol related anti-social behaviour when attending football games in Hartlepool.

Police said their behaviour is having a direct detrimental impact on businesses in the town, their customers and also the wider community.

These orders will be monitored and breaches can result in fines, continued breaches will see applications being made for Criminal Behaviour Orders (CBO’s) and football banning orders.
