Police have made a plea to parents after reports of anti-social behaviour problems in Gwynedd.

Officers have been made aware of large crowds of youths gathering at Criccieth esplanade and travelling southwards down the coast to Harlech, Barmouth and Tywyn, particularly on Friday and Saturday evenings.

It is believed that the youngsters are travelling on trains and are causing further problems for British Transport Police officers.

Members of the North Wales Police Gwynedd South Team said on Facebook: “Do you know where your children are and what they’re doing when they’re out with friends?

“Antisocial behaviour is one of our district priorities and, as such, we will be working hard to deter this behaviour as much as possible.

“The Gwynedd South Neighbourhood Policing Team are aware of this and are working closely with British Transport Police, Gwynedd Council and local secondary schools to deter this behaviour and are planning further meetings with authorities in the future to discuss further preventative measures.

“If you have concerns about antisocial behaviour in your area, you can report it to us via LiveChat or 101.”
