Cathedral granted dispersal order
Ely Cathedral
The dispersal order follows complaints from residents
Groups of people are being banned from congregating outside a popular tourist attraction in Cambridgeshire.

The dispersal order outside Ely Cathedral follows a number of complaints from residents about people drinking alcohol.

Cambridgeshire Police Insp Adam Gallop said: "These groups are intimidating visitors and residents."

The order is designed to curb anti-social behaviour and will come into effect on Wednesday.

The order was secured by Cambridgeshire Police working with East Cambridgeshire Community Safety Partnership.
