Police are urging parents to make sure they know where their children are at night after a rise in anti-social behaviour in Corby.

The call comes following an increase in Anti-Social Behaviour (ASB) in the town centre since the start of the school holidays, with children seen out and about into the early hours of the morning.

We are currently experiencing high levels of ASB in Corby town centre with incidents involving teenagers aged 12 to 16 and have an operation in place to tackle it.

Incidents have included criminal damage, intimidating members of the public, throwing stones and assaulting vulnerable people and smoking cannabis.
