Police have introduced dispersal orders in Frinton-on-sea, Clacton-on-Sea and Harwich this weekend to curb anti-social behaviour.

They follow concerns of people acting in an anti-social manner, resulting from drunken behaviour. 

A spokesman for Essex Police said the dispersal order is in place in Clacton after reports of criminal damage, disorder and fireworks being set off in public places likely to cause damage or injury.

They aim to prevent crime and people living in the area being harassed, alarmed or distressed and gives officers power to move anyone believed to be behaving anti-socially from the area.
