POLICE in Copeland are urging young people to think about the consequences of their actions after reports of teenagers throwing objects including stones.

Officers were called to three different incidents on Monday and Sergeant David Macdonald, of Copeland Local Focus Hub, warned anybody identified will be dealt with “robustly”. No-one was injured, but officers said there could have been serious consequences.

The reports were of children throwing stones from a footpath above the harbour in Whitehaven; youths inside a derelict building in Cleator, dropping objects from windows and a report of youths throwing objects onto the line near Millom train station at around 11.15pm. Officers said there was nothing on the tracks when they attended.

Sgt Macdonald said: “Please be aware of where your children are and what they are up to.

“Each of these incidents could have had serious consequences and anybody identified will be dealt with robustly.”

Police also posted the warning on the Copeland Focus Facebook page. A spokesman added: “Following our hectic week last week things appeared to have settled a little.

“Overnight was kept going with incidents: a disqualified driver arrested in Whitehaven and the vehicle uplifted, a mountain rescue incident at Ennerdale, some domestic disputes, a missing teenager and several antisocial behaviour logs across the district relating to youth throwing stones and items off buildings and onto railway tracks.”

Anyone with information should call police on 101.
