THE good weather returned to Tenby and Saundersfoot for the third weekend of Operation Lion.

Under Operation Lion, which is running every Saturday, Sunday and Bank Holiday Monday in Tenby and Saundersfoot from Saturday July 21 to Saturday September 1, more police resources are dedicated to the area to help cope with the increase of crime, disorder and antisocial behaviour the town experiences over the summer.

Over the weekend of August 4 and 5 high visibility reassurance patrols were conducted in the area which included visits to local businesses and licensed premises. Officers also attended the train station to meet and greet the public arriving by train.

Under Operation Lion, Constables and Police Community Support Officers (PCSOs) can direct people to leave certain areas of Tenby if their behaviour is unacceptable, which can stop behaviour worsening. Known as a Section 35 notice, not complying can lead to arrest.

On Saturday August 4, a 39-year-old male from Tenby and a 44-year-old from Pontypridd were issued with a Section 35 notice due to their obstructive behaviour following disorder in Lower Frog Street.

Tenby Sergeant Gavin Howells, said: “On the whole, this weekend’s visitors have enjoyed themselves, especially the families attending the summer spectacular event in Tenby. Unfortunately a few people’s behaviour did get out of hand and we made a number of arrests. We welcome visitors to the area however we will take positive action against those who causing ASB and public disorder or committing crime.”
