Police respond to drug use and anti-social behaviour in King's Lynn 'priority' area




Police have said the Walks in Lynn is one of their priorities as they respond to recent anti-social behaviour and drug use.

Foot patrols have been conducted this morning by beat manager PC Ross McConnachie.

As well as the Walks, police have identified the bus station, town centre and Tower Gardens as priorities for these patrols.

PC Lee Anderton, community engagement officer for Lynn, said a person was found overdosed in the toilets recently. They were subsequently taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital.

He added: "It's general ongoing nuisance. It is mainly youths going into late teens. It's your typical street drinkers so it's just preventing that."

Police state this morning's foot patrols in the Walks area are not necessarily connected to the recent bus station disturbances in which dozens of youths were issued dispersal orders, as well as a few arrests during January.
