Police are taking action to tackle drug dealing and prostitution in the Rosary Road area of Norwich.
A dispersal order has been put in place for Rosary Road and Old Library Woods to address concerns around anti-social behaviour.
The order gives police the power to ban someone from returning to the area for up to 48 hours if they are causing trouble.
Sgt Mark Shepherd said the order was put in place after residents reported concerns about drug dealing in Old Library Woods and ongoing problems with prostitution on Rosary Road.
He said police received two calls at around 8am today (May 7) about a drug deal taking place in Old Library Woods.
