AS vandalism and anti-social behaviour in Kesgrave continue police are urging worried residents to attend a public meeting to discuss their concerns.

Last month police received a letter from 34 anonymous residents who claim the yobs are making their lives a misery.

The authors of the letter refused to identify themselves for fear of the reaction from the youngsters but complained of problems with vandalism, small fires, graffiti and litter, particularly in the Pilborough's Walk area.

Police are now hoping that the authors of the letter will attend the meeting, along with any other concerned residents, to let them know exactly when and where the problems are occurring.

Woodbridge sector commander Insp Ben Cook said: "I cannot stress enough that people need to come forward and talk to us so that we can pinpoint exactly what the problems are.

"If the community stands together with the police we can demonstrate that anti social behaviour will not be tolerated."

A spokesman for Kesgrave town council said: "If we can help the police forge the links with those affected, hopefully we can move towards stamping the problem out."

The meeting will be held at the Town Council offices on Ropes Drive on October 20 at 7pm.
