Police impose curfew on rowdy gang after catalogue of attacks

POLICE are ramping up patrols in a bid to crackdown on yobs behind a string of arson and vandal attacks in Cheadle.
Under-pressure officers were forced to deal with a catalogue of more than 20 incidents at the weekend as a gang of youths hurled bricks at a bus, threw lit fireworks and threatened passers-by before setting light to a building at Churchill Road recreation ground.
Members of the Moorlands Local Policing Team fear the crime spree could be repeated during the run-up to Bonfire Night and revealed plans to impose an anti-social behaviour order in the town this weekend.
The Section 35 dispersal notice, which gives officers the power to ban individuals from the town centre for 48 hours, will be put in place from 7pm on Friday and could be re-introduced at any time.
PC Dave Stubbs, based in Cheadle, believes one large group of teenagers and children, some as young as 10, were responsible for an ‘unprecedented’ spate of incidents.
He issued an appeal for witnesses and promised extra resources would be brought in to ensure there’s no repeat.
