Motorist at the end of his tether after numerous reports of anti-social behaviour.

Reports of anti-social behaviour across Grimsby and Cleethorpes have been numerous in recent weeks. One man said they pelted his car with eggs and he was at his Wit’s end and is fed up with the youths of this town who think it is ok to go round egging people’s cars.

There have been reports of children causing criminal damage and smoking illegal substances. Also, a group of teenagers approx 13-15 years old have been riding on pedal bikes and causing mindless criminal damage.
