Graffiti behind Morecambe's Victoria Hospital

A large group of young people were spoken to by PCSO Karen Hodgson, the joint city council/police anti-social behaviour officer, following reports of nuisance at the back of Morecambe’s Victoria Hospital on Monday evening, July 31. The disturbance included graffiti to walls and windows and the smoking of cannabis.

Karen will be contacting parents/carers over the next few days to decide which course of action to take to steer them onto the right path.

A spokesperson added: “Cannabis is increasingly becoming a factor in youth anti-social behaviour and if parents are concerned that their children may be involved in drugs, they can get advice from the city council’s website. Young people can also contact Young Addaction on 0808 164 0074.”
