Buckie police are appealing to adults to be aware of what their children are doing outside the home.

The plea comes following complaints of large numbers of youths gathering at Linzee Gordon Park, Buckie High School and Victoria Bowling Club.

A number of play parks have been targeted by vandals over the last few weeks. Brand new play equipment at Ian Johnston Park has been targeted, with damage also done at Merson Park and the play area at Buckpool Harbour.

In recent weeks a number of youths have been dealt with in relation to under age drinking, drug use and anti-social behaviour.

The police have reminded teenagers that they should not gather in large groups or conduct themselves in an anti-social manner.

Directed patrols are taking place in the area.
