Latest figures show incidents of anti-social behaviour recorded by police fell sharply over the last 12 months.

In the year to February 2019, there were 501 less cases than the previous year in the Causeway Coast and Glens district – a fall of 12.5 per cent.

Across the borough, police received 3507 complaints, compare to 4008 last year.

The decrease reflects a province-wide trend which saw a fall in recorded incidents of 7.6 per cent.

Only one policing district saw a rise in incidents – Fermanagh and Omagh.

According to the report accompanying the latest statistics, there has been a general decline in recorded anti-social behaviour since 2006.
