Police and council act on anti-social behaviour.

POLICE officers have been working with North Tyneside Council to tackle crime and anti-social behaviour issues.

Officers from Whitley Bay Neighbourhood Policing Team have teamed up with North Tyneside Council's Safer Estates Team to make joint visits to tenants suspected of being involved in crime and ASB.

During the visit three tenants received a notice of seeking possession of their properties following several issues of anti-social behaviour on the Metro. Other tenants visited were warned that their tenancies will be at risk and other future action could include Anti-Social Behaviour Injunctions, if further complaints are received.

Neighbourhood Inspector Jim Gray said: "We're committed to addressing the issues that are affecting our communities, be it crime or anti-social behaviour related.

"By running the operations together, with partners in North Tyneside Council, it strengthens our message that anti-social behaviour will not be tolerated. We are cracking down on those who commit anti-social behaviour and associated crime." North Tyneside Council's Safer Estates Manager, Colin Boxshall said: "North Tyneside is a wonderful place to live, work and visit and we will not allow a minority to spoil it. "No one should feel frightened or intimidated using public transport, or at any location anywhere in our borough, and we take swift action against those who cause such problems.

"The joint operations with the police are proving to be very effective and are making a difference to our communities."

Anyone with any concerns of anti-social behaviour can contact police on 101.
