An Item of Local News –

At Peterborough Magistrates’ Court on 24th June, Shane Arthur, 29, of Haynes Close, Sawtry, was given a Criminal Behaviour Order (CBO) preventing him from entering St Ives and Huntingdon town centres except for legitimate reasons, following repeated incidents of anti-social behaviour.

The CBO follows an admission by Arthur to being drunk and disorderly and using threatening or abusive words or behaviour in St Ives on 3rd April.

And Finally … Drug Culture Exploitation of Young People in St Ives

Neighbourhood officers in St Ives are aware that young people are being lured into the local drug culture by being given ‘free weed’ by dealers and are then being pressured into selling cannabis, crack cocaine and heroin to pay off their debts.

This is not ‘free weed’ – this is child exploitation.

If you have concerns for your child, you can speak to the police via the on-line “101 Live Chat” service at this link:


Alternatively, you can obtain drug support advice from the NHS ‘Child and Adolescent Substance Use Service’ (CASUS) at this link:
