A DISPERSAL order is in place in Llangollen this weekend amid a rise in anti-social behaviour issues.

North Wales Police has said the order is in place in the town centre from 4pm today (Friday, February 16) until 4pm on Sunday. 

The dispersal order gives a police officer or PCSO the power to exclude a person from the area for up to 48 hours. 

A spokesperson for the Conwy & Denbighire Rural policing team said: "Your local Neighbourhood Policing Team have been in Llangollen town patrolling and offering support to anyone having issues with anti-social behaviour.

"We have seen a rise in reports, and as a result we have put in place a dispersal order.

"We are committed in tackling the issue and identifying who is involved."
