ISSUES of anti-social behaviour, littering, and fighter kite flying are being addressed by police in Swarthmoor and Low Furness.

This comes after a number of incidents in the last month where police have continued to deal with further incidents of antisocial behaviour and neighbour disputes.

PCSO Helen Madden said: "Additional patrols have been carried out in problem areas.

"Please note disputes over landownership and boundaries are a civil matter. Advice regarding this can be obtained from Citizens Advice.

"Noise complaints should be reported to local council, South Lakeland District Council or email

"Following the further reports of fighter kite flying and the subsequent problem of debris washing up on the shore line creating a litter / environmental problem, a multi-agency meeting has been held and options discussed to find a way forward in addressing this. Please note kite flying is not prohibited at the present time.

"The issue of fly tipping continues and these have been further reports to our colleagues at SLDC as well as continuing complaints around littering in local parks and public spaces; please take your litter home."
