YOUTHS in Chryston are continuing to flout lockdown laws to rave in woods, despite police warnings.

The Glasgow Times has reported since the start of May youths have been displaying anti-social behaviour in the woodlands area behind Grayston Manor.

The area is a local beauty spot common with dog walkers and families.

Glasgow Times:

Teenagers have been terrorising neighbours with parties, leaving behind bags of broken bottles and playing loud music. After the incident was reported in the Glasgow Times on Wednesday, the yobs were back that night with worst behaviour yet.

A local resident told The Glasgow Times: "They were louder than ever.

"We were all phoning the police. This time they left behind drug paraphernalia and used condoms and had blaring music into the early hours.

They continued: "Police came to the estate and the woods but I don't think they arrested anything because they went to the wrong bit.

Glasgow Times:

"Some residents are now scared to approach them after the noise and mess they made.

"It is so unfair. They are so disrespectful and it's actually scary."

This week, local councillor John MacLaren and MSP Fulton MacGregor lashed out at the young offenders but it did not stop the kids.

Sergeant Stephen Shanks, of Cumbernauld Police Station, said: "We are aware of concerns raised by the community in the Chryston area and officers are carrying out targeted patrols.

Glasgow Times:

"We received a report of antisocial behaviour around 12.30am on Thursday, 21 May, and officers attended to find there was nothing ongoing. Our community officers then visited the area later that morning to speak to residents to offer our reassurance and advice.

"We will continue to engage with the community and take appropriate action when incidents are reported and offenders are identified.

"Anyone who has concerns about anti-social behaviour in their area is encouraged to contact police by calling 101 as quickly as possible."
