POLICE have stepped up patrols around a Highcliffe clifftop car park plagued by “dangerous and highly disruptive” anti-social driving.

Offending motorists are being warned action will be taken amid ongoing reports of disturbances outside the Cliffhanger café, off Waterford Road.

As well as heightened evening patrols, officers will be reviewing the car park’s CCTV.

“Any vehicles identified as driving anti-socially will be dealt with appropriately – which may include seizure of the vehicle,” a police Facebook post warned.

“Misuse of vehicles in the car park can be both dangerous and highly disruptive for residents and visitors to the site.”

In June last year, the A&T reported officers issued a warning to one reckless young driver caught climbing onto the roof of his moving car.

Around the same time villagers failed in their bid to persuade BCP Council to extend its Public Spaces Protection Order to cover Highcliffe.

This empowers community safety accredited officers to confiscate alcohol from those causing or likely to cause a public nuisance, although it does not ban street-drinking.

Anti-social driving should be reported online at dorset.police.uk/do-it-online or by calling 101.
