POLICE officers have warned they will be “making visits to houses” after a spate of anti-social behaviour in Prestonpans, Cockenzie and Port Seton.

Buses passing through the communities have been damaged by youngsters throwing objects at them.

Officers had teamed up with East Lothian Council’s community wardens and used mobile CCTV vehicles in a bid to tackle the problem.

A spokesman for Police Scotland said that that approach would continue over the coming weeks.

Dedicated police officers will also be patrolling the areas “every evening for the foreseeable weeks ahead”.

The spokesman said: “Despite their presence, some youths continue to cause disorder, running away when approached.

“We have positive lines of enquiry for some of these offences and will be making visits to houses in the next few days to charge those responsible.

“This response will continue until the disorder is stopped and we will use all prevention opportunities available. We have officers dedicated to patrolling the area every evening for the foreseeable weeks ahead.”

PC Craig Purves, East Lothian’s preventions officer, also visited shops and businesses in the area over the weekend to ensure everyone was working together to combat the problem.
