Dispersal order 'has cut crime'
A dispersal order has been extended for six months in a part of Calne.

The order, for the Pippin area, was put in place in May and Wiltshire Police said reports of antisocial behaviour have fallen since then.

The order allows police to break up groups of teenagers and anyone who fails to comply can be arrested.

Insp Gavin Williams said: "I am confident we can impact on any antisocial behaviour and improve the quality of life for residents."
