Gloucester Police say they have received numerous calls relating to the anti-social behaviour from young people on the streets.

This is following complaints that groups of young boys between ages of 13 and 16 have been out at night in groups of up to 40.

Police say they have issued multiple warnings in the past few weeks after reports were of intimidating and threatening behaviour.

The anti-social behaviour includes cycling around the city centre wearing masks and threatening to hit and run over members of the public.

One youngster reportedly approached an elderly man and poured a can of drink over his head.

Police have also sent a message out to parents to make sure they are vigilant and aware of their children's whereabouts.
