A dispersal order is in place in Lenton after Nottinghamshire Police received numerous calls from residents about noise and antisocial behaviour.

The order was put into place from 6pm on the 22nd of June and is being run for 48 hours.

Police received multiple reports of loud parties on Monday night and the force are urging people to be more considerate of their neighbours.

Inspector Amy English has also reinforced the zero-tolerance approach officers will take to those continue to be disruptive.

It gives officers and police community support officers the power to direct people to leave an area if they are being disruptive.

If you ignore any rules given by the police you can be arrested.

Neighbourhood Policing Inspector Amy English said: “It is totally unacceptable that residents should be kept awake into the small hours of the morning on a weekday night because people are partying.

“While we understand that relaxed restrictions mean that people can mix with others indoors and more outdoors, that does not give people a free pass to act in whatever way they please.

“A lot of people have work and young families that are being kept up due to the noise and it is totally disrespectful to ignore this and act inappropriately.

“That is why we have taken the decision to put this order in place. I want to residents to know that we understand their concerns and will take action to address them where we can.

“There will be an increased police presence in Lenton tonight and we will proactively be looking to tackle any antisocial behaviour where we see it.”

Insp English is also keen to remind the public that Covid-19 still remains a threat and can be easily spread.

She added: “Cases of Covid-19 continue to rise and when people are drinking and socialising, there is always a chance for the disease to spread further.

“Remember, you may have Covid-19 and be asymptomatic, so please be mindful when spending time with others that you may be unknowingly putting them at risk.

“Also, vaccines are not immediately effective and just because you have had your first jab, that does not mean you are fully protected against the virus and the variants.

“Please remain cautious and follow the government guidelines around hands, face and space.”

Nottinghamshire Police encourages members of the public to report their concerns via 101 or in an emergency dial 999.
