A dispersal notice is in force in a section of Flint this weekend due to anti-social behaviour.

The order came into force at 3pm on Friday for Flint Retail Park and will end on 12.01am on Sunday.

A North Wales Police spokesman said: “Owing to an increase in reported incidents of anti-social behaviour in the Flint area, an inspector has authorised a dispersal notice.

“The notice allows police officers or PCSOs to direct any person who is acting or may act in an anti-social manner to leave a specified area for a period of time. Failure to comply with this may result in an arrest.

“Parents, please don't let your children fall foul of this legislation this weekend. Do you know where they are, who they are with and what they are doing?”
