Lambeth Council have explained why they have chosen to bring in a dispersal zone in Vauxhall. It started at midday today.
We are acting promptly to tackle this emerging problem at the request of local people. We are seeing groups of people leaving nightclubs and then congregating in the area, around spots that include the Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens.
Many appear to be taking the legal high nitrous oxide, and then have their own little parties around cars with the stereos turned up to play loud music. We are working closely with Lambeth police on discouraging this anti-social behaviour.
