POLICE have stepped up patrols in Bassingbourn in a bid to tackle anti-social behaviour.
The move comes after a police constable and a PCSO were abused and had objects thrown at their patrol car by a group of youths in the village.
Sgt Mark Kathro said such behaviour would not be tolerated.
He said that police would be concentrating their efforts on the areas around the recreation ground, the village college and the junior school.
"Anti-social behaviour is an issue that continues to concern many people in our communities and we will deal with it robustly by issuing fines and, if necessary, making arrests," he said.
"I would appeal to residents to report all incidents and contact police with any information about who is involved in this sort of behaviour."
