Police have been targeting speeding motorists and anti-social behaviour in a bid to address the concerns of residents living in a village in Wrexham.

An impact day was recently held in Rhostyllen which saw officers work with the community council to carry out high visibility patrols.

A speed gun was deployed and speeding motorists were given suitable advice.

Drugs dogs searched pubs and one man will be dealt with at a later date after being stopped and searched and found to be in possession of cannabis.

The impact day also identified areas of the village in need of an environmental clean-up which it is hoped will be undertaken in the near future.

Community Beat Manager PC Dave Smith said: “Our intention is to provide a safer neighbourhood and to work closely with our community leaders, residents and partners.

“We led an operation in Rhostyllen to tackle speeding, drink driving and other issues affecting the community. This work will continue in partnership with those who proactively work with us.”

Similar days are planned for other parts of the area.
