The number of patrols by police in Diss on Friday and Saturday nights have increased following a rise in the number of reports for anti-social behaviour.

It was revealed after police issued a plea for more information following two incidents of criminal damage in the town, which are not currently being linked.

The first happened on Friday, March 13, between 10.05pm and 10.15pm when a window was smashed at an address on Denmark Street.

This came ahead of a further incident on Denmark Street on Saturday, March 14, between 11pm and 11.10pm, when two windows were smashed at a property.

PC Andrew Birdsey said: “We have received an increase in the number of reports of anti-social behaviour in this part of Diss in the last couple of weeks, particularly on Friday and Saturday nights, and we have increased our patrols in the area.

“We would ask householders in the area to report any further incidents of this type that they witness to us and to pass on any information they may have about any of the incidents that have already occurred.”

Anyone who thinks they may have witnessed any anti-social behaviour in the areas named above should contact PC Birdsey at Diss Police Station on 101. Alternatively, call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111
