Police in Wistaston have carried out an operation to tackle the recent rise in anti-social behaviour in the area.
The operation, which took place over the weekend of 26 October, involved officers on foot and the use of a mobile CCTV van to prevent and deter youths from gathering in the Wistaston and Wistaston Green areas.
Police seized large amounts of alcohol from youths and issued more than 20 ‘yellow card′ warnings for anti-social behaviour.
PC Dan Sambrook, of Crewe NPU, said: "The influx of officers in the area has prevented large groups of youths from congregating and reduced the number of reports of anti-social behaviour.
"We are committed to tackling the issue and will continue to provide extra enforcement over the coming weekends."
Officers have also seen a rise in the number of incidents involving youths letting off fireworks in the street.
In the run up to bonfire night, police are reminding the public that it is illegal for anyone under 18 to buy or use fireworks.
Anyone under18 found with fireworks in a public place could face a fine, caution or court appearance.
