Business owners at Turriff Industrial Estate have been on the receiving end of more anti social behaviour this week.
Groups of people have been congregating in cars, leaving litter spread around the area despite bins being available near by.
Last week it was widely reported about the increased level of vandalism at the Business Centre, with ball bearings being fired at the building, breaking windows and damaging lights.
A business owner who didn’t want to be named due to fear of being targeted said
This morning is an exceptional mess caused by youngsters dropping litter out of their cars. Also, there were more broken windows over the weekend, I feel they are taking the mick now
A CCTV image provided to My Turriff shows a number of people and cars on the industrial estate recently, (there is no evidence to suggest the people in the image are responsible for the damage, littering or any anti social behaviour).
Reports of anti social behaviour and anti social driving are a regular complaint at the Turriff and District Community Council meetings, Tesco car park, the academy car park, Delgaty Woods and Turriff Industrial Estate were all mentioned as areas where anti social behaviour takes place. Local officers from Police Scotland are working to try and reduce this.
Sgt Lorraine Mackie from Turriff Police Station was present at the community council meeting on Monday and asked that people who see any anti social behaviour or driving should report it by calling 101. Local officers can then investigate the reports and the data about the number of complaints will help them to access additional resources in the future.
