Several arrests made after disorder breaks out in Loddon

A MAN was fined for drunken behaviour, and seven other men were arrested on suspicion of public order offences after trouble flared in Loddon.

High visibility police patrols were being carried out this week following the disorder in Loddon overnight on October 1 and 2.

Seven people were arrested after officers were called to the Church Plain area about 11.30pm on Saturday following reports of youths causing criminal damage and anti-social behaviour in the vicinity of Jubilee Hall, although there was no trouble at the hall itself.

The group was quickly dispersed and seven men were arrested at the scene on suspicion of public order offences, another man was fined for drunken behaviour. All have been released on bail pending further enquiries.

Inspector James Brown, from the Loddon Safer Neighbourhood Team (SNT), said: 'All those arrested over the weekend have now been released on bail, some with conditions, while our investigations continue.
