A GROUP of youths have been identified after damaging a business site in Nelson.

Police say that they received the report last night and on arriving at the scene, three of the four ran away.

However, officers recognised them and say action will be taken.

A police spokesperson said: "The same youths have been identified as part of a larger group who are causing anti-social behaviour around Nelson.

"This type of behaviour will not be tolerated, and action will be taken against those causing problems.

"Covid fines have been issued to parents due to their children continuously breaching Covid 19 regulations and action will be taken against those responsible for the damage caused."

Residents concerned about anti-social behaviour can contact police by calling 101.
