Police and town hall officers also moved on beggars and buskers, confiscated alcohol from street drinkers, and issued fines for obstruction of the highway, fly-tipping and waste in front gardens.

The multi-service action is focused on hotspots identified from analysis of complaints and reports from residents.

Cabinet lead for crime and community safety, Cllr James Beckles, who joined officers in Stratford, said: “We are determined to make our streets safer for all. That means getting out into the community, talking to people about the issues affecting them and what could be done to make their lives safer and more pleasant.”
