Lancing and Shoreham witness patrols begin antisocial behavior

A SPIKE engaged in antisocial behavior has prompted emergency patrols on a beach.

Enforcement officers will patrol the area between the Widewater Lagoon in Lancing and Shoreham Fort car park – and can issue fines of £80 for rule breakers.

An increase in visitors has led to an increase in crickets, which are prohibited on the stretch of beach, as well as dog waste, trash and general anti-social behavior.

Councilor Emma Evans, Adur District Council senior member for environment and recreation, said: “Those who allow their dogs to be dumped or soiled without taking them in are warned – we will not allow you to ruin our beach without suffering the consequences .

“A small minority of people behave irresponsibly, littering or burning grills and spoiling everything else.

“We don’t want to be too clumsy, and often the patrols give advice to visitors.

“We want to welcome visitors and residents alike to our boardwalk and of course Shoreham Beach has always been popular.”

Officials will also crack down on unlicensed use of drones in the area, as well as horse riders, cyclists and scooter riders who break the rules on the beach.

The patrols began last week and will run until September 25.

It is not the first time patrols have been seen in Shoreham for antisocial behavior as police increased the number of officers in the area in May.

Adur and Worthing Police officers increased their presence in and around the Ferry Road following reports of public concern.

In early May, police patrolled “hot spots” for anti-social behavior in Arundel town center over fears sparked by the bank holiday weekend.

Police said at the time they were conducting high-visibility patrols and engaging with the community and businesses in the area. Lancing and Shoreham witness patrols begin antisocial behavior
