Police in talks on castle closure.

POLICE have called an urgent meeting with Cadw after Flint Castle was closed to the public because of yobs.

Cadw announced on Tuesday that it was closing the castle after boozing youths plagued staff and visitors, smashing bottles and shouting abuse.

Last night District Inspector Dave Roome said police had not been told of the castle closure.

"North Wales Police deals with all incidents of anti-social behaviour seriously. An initiative is being run across all areas of Eastern Division. Operation Halt is specifically run to prevent and deter crime and anti-social behaviour, and this operation is active in Flint, including the area surrounding the castle.

"There has been a fall in reported anti-social behaviour in the North Flintshire area. We have arranged an urgent meeting with Cadw's management team to discuss the way forward."

. Anyone with information should contact local officers on 0845 607 1001 (Welsh) or 0845 607 1002 (English).
