YOUTH-RELATED anti-social behaviour will be targeted by police in Prestonpans, Cockenzie and Port Seton and Longniddry over the coming weeks.

The ward’s community and police partnership (CAPP), which is attended by community police officers, councillors and community representatives, identified the problem as one of two key issues, alongside road safety around schools.

A spokesperson for Police Scotland said: “These areas will be given attention by local officers over the coming weeks and details of activity will be posted on our social media pages.”
