North Wales Police says it will crackdown on anti-social youths running over buildings.
Officers in Conwy say the practice of "free running" is an increasing trend and youths are using the roofs of buildings in the Llandudno area, including schools, shops, offices and churches.
Police say it is only a matter of time before someone falls and is seriously injured or killed.
If you participate in free running, using street furniture or private or public buildings, you are putting yourself and others at risk of serious injury. You could also cause criminal damage to property.
We want to educate the young people who do this about the dangers. However, to ensure their own safety we will prosecute those who commit these offences in a bid to deter others and also to reassure the wider public that we are dealing with this extremely dangerous anti-social behaviour.
Conwy Council have stepped back from a controversial move to collect refuse bins once every four weeks.
The decision has been made instead to introduce a three week collection service, like several other councils in Wales.
However, they will be running 'pilot' four week collections in a selected part of the county yet to be selected.
I am still concerned about the decision. It's a better one than I was expecting but lots of people will be angry about a reduction in the frequency of collections.
"There is still a threat that four-weekly collections may be imposed at some future date, that uncertainty hasn't gone away."
