Officers responded to reports of anti-social behaviour and a breach of coronavirus regulations at Sovereign Park, off Princess Drive in Acomb.

In a tweet, the York South team at North Yorkshire Police said: “A group of youths were congregating in a bin shed.

“All spoken to and reminded of the lockdown regulations of meeting more than one person.”

Officers have sent letters to their parents, “reminding them of their responsibility”.
