A warning is going out to parents in Camborne about antisocial behaviour and so-called 'nuisance youths' in the town centre.

Police say two ring leaders have been identified after a string of reports on Tuesday night.

Home visits to the individuals will be carried out and officers are urging mums and dads to chat to their children about behaviour.

The message from officials is that this kind of behaviour "will not be tolerated".

"Police Officers from Camborne were called to Camborne town centre after multiple calls from members of the public regarding nuisance youths, an area search was conducted and officers have identified two ring leaders. 

"Visits to the home addresses of these youths will be completed as soon as possible so that this behaviour is not repeated.

"Please can parents/guardians speak with their children about how to behave when out in public as this kind of behaviour will not be tolerated. 

"Also, please be mindful that some of the youths that your children are associating with could be encouraging them to engage in anti-social and criminal behaviour.

"If you see anything of concern please call 101/999 as appropriate."

Camborne, Pool and Redruth Police
