Officers are working with shopkeepers in the town and surrounding villages in a new bid to curb antisocial behaviour.

Police have been working with staff at the Co-op in Broadbridge Heath, along with Southwater Co-op and the village’s Budgens store.

The move follows recent complaints of youngsters hurling around eggs and creating havoc in some areas.
