ANOTHER dispersal order is being introduced in Colchester town centre this weekend due to concerns over antisocial behaviour and alcohol related issues.

Essex Police have announced a 48-hour order will be implemented in the town from 6pm on Friday until 6pm on Sunday.

The area covered is bounded by Cowdrey Avenue, East Street, Brook Street and A134.

The order has been put in place to prevent crime and disorder and prevent people living in the area being harassed, alarmed or distressed.

Officers will be patrolling the area and the order gives officers additional powers to move anyone believed to be behaving anti-socially from the area.

It is the third such order which has been authorised in Colchester since the start of August.
