South Yorkshire police can now use new powers to disperse groups of people from anti-social behaviour blackspots and target night time revellers or football fans.
"Many interventions have been put in place by the police and partners and although some measures have had some success nuisance behaviour still persists on an almost daily basis. The common theme that appears to cause the most concern is rowdy, inconsiderate and abusive behaviour. This behaviour is often from people in large groups and has led to members o the public and business community reporting the feeling of being harrassed and intimidated."
