Youths have been gathering in an abandoned building in Weymouth, putting themselves in danger and risking the health of emergency workers.

Police say they are stepping up patrols after reports of anti-social behaviour in the Ferrybridge area.

They are reminding parents that the COVID-19 restrictions mean their children should be staying at home.

A spokesman for Weymouth & Portland Police said:

"Officers will be carrying out regular patrols and where necessary will return youths to their home address."
