Young troublemakers could be banned from Wilmslow town centre following an incident involving youths this evening.
A special Dispersal Order was put in place by police on Saturday after one youth was detained and a number of others were removed from the area.
The order gives constables and Police Community Support Officers (PCSOs) the power to disperse crowds and prevent nuisance teenagers from returning.
Officers can ask troublemakers to leave and not return within the next 24 hours.
If a teen aged under 16 is in the dispersal area without the supervision of an adult after 9pm, the police could take them home if it was safe to do so.
If anyone returns to the area after being asked to leave, they would be arrested.
A highlighted map of Wilmslow shows the area affected by the order.
Officers will continue to patrol the town centre and surrounding areas, including Colshaw Farm, to prevent further incidents.
Cheshire Police posted on Facebook: “We have issued a dispersal order for the Wilmslow area following an incident this evening.
