In response to local residents concerns of harm to the swans on Frecheville pond Birley Ward Councillors contacted the local police team. We have been informed that police were in Frecheville for most of the last night. They managed to get hold of two separate groups. One consisting of 4 males and 3 females. All were searched and one male was in possession of fireworks and will be dealt with further today. He was taken home to his parents. They will be looking at PAL letters for the others that were stopped.
Later in the evening they managed to get hold of three from a second group. One was taken home to his parents and the other two will be dealt with today when police are back on duty. Again they will be looking at PAL letters.
They will ensure that patrols continue over the drake nights period.
