A POLICE chief has praised the behaviour of night time revellers following a busy bank holiday weekend.

Wrexham Inspector Paul Wycherley said despite a busier than normal night on Sunday in the town, no arrests were made and only two incidents of bad behaviour were recorded due to people being drunk.

The force had been advised by various landlords in the town Sunday would prove to be the busiest night for months.

It proved to be so with the town heaving with people enjoying a night out.

Insp Wycherley said: “Through our Nightsafe partnership with town centre licence holders, we were told it was set to be a very busy night on Sunday.

“We policed the night appropriately and I am delighted to say we had no arrests and only two incidents. I had people coming up to me asking why there were so many officers on the street and I would say to them we act on the information we receive from our partners.

“The fact we had no arrests suggests it was successfully policed and I’d like to thank the public for their co-operation with officers. There was a great atmosphere in town on the night and it seemed to me that everyone really enjoyed their night out.

“The footfall was also very good, which is great news for our pub and bar owners.”

Insp Wycherley revealed members of the force are currently working out a policing strategy for the town centre for the duration of the football World Cup, taking place from June 12 to July 13.

The tournament, being held in Brazil, includes a number of weekend fixtures, some kicking-off at 11pm and one at 2am.

“The World Cup is an event which always brings people out to watch games in the pubs and bars,” he said. “We are keen to ensure we have sufficient patrols in Wrexham town centre for the busiest days of football action on the TV and we will be working hard to ensure Wrexham is a safe and friendly place to visit for the entire tournament.”
