Priority

The local beat team have started to see an increase in calls regarding anti-social driving in Cheddar village and the gorge.

Anti Social driving is where a vehicle or group of vehicle's are being used in a manner which is likely to cause members of the public harassment, alarm or distress. For example, loud music, excessive and unnecessary engine revving, wheels spinning, hand brake turns and drifting.

The local beat team are conducting proactive patrols on evenings and weekends to monitor the situation. If you witness a vehicle being used in this manner please call 101 or email the beat team with the registration, description of vehicle and the manner in which the vehicle was being used.

Action taken

We are aware that the Gorge continues to cause concerns to our community following reports of anti- social driving in the area. As a result of this we are closely working with partner agencies to address this. In addition, the local Neighbourhood Policing Team and our Special Constabulary continue to work together closely and patrol the area on a regular basis.
