Pc Roberts added: “The youths unsurprisingly got very drunk and the children’s play park was covered in broken beer bottles.

“To the credit of the youth’s parents, the youths cleaned up the mess the next day and a complaint was made by them to police.

“The male responsible fully accepted his actions and accepted a Police Fixed Penalty Notice.”
