POLICE Scotland have released an image of booze seized from underage drinkers over the course of one weekend.

The force cracked down on boozy teams in the Dumbarton and Balloch areas.

Officers from both Divisional Support Team and Community Units, in uniform and plain clothes patrols, seized the alcohol from teens under 18 years between Friday, April 27 and Sunday, April 29. A number of youths were returned to their home addresses as a result.

Inspector Roddy MacNeill, of Dumbarton Community Policing Team, said: "After recent disorder on the rail network, and in the Balloch area, joint visits have commenced to home addresses of individuals involved. Joint visits are being conducted by Police and WDC Anti-Social Team officers warning youths that further acts of disorder will result in action being taken in line with the Anti-Social Behaviour (Scotland) Act 2004. Such action can involve, Acceptable Behaviour Agreements, Anti-Social Behaviour Orders, Curfews and Juvenile tags. Such measures have already been utilised to good effect with some individuals who failed to heed advice.

"The patrols will be maintained over the coming weeks and groups gathering whose behaviour is having a negative impact on the lives of residents will be dealt with.

"British Transport Police are also putting on extra officers to address a recent spike in offending on their network and they will also be ensuring youths recently made subject of bail conditions not to use the trains, do not utilise the network, breaching said conditions."
