Main article content
A dispersal order is in place in The Headland over the weekend whilst Hartlepool celebrates the 100th anniversary of the Headland Carnival.
The carnival has been running for the last week, and the area has experienced a rise in antisocial behaviour across the last seven days.
In order to ensure that this is a safe space for families to enjoy the fun, the dispersal order will prevent large groups of teenagers congregating together in an intimidating manner.
The dispersal order runs from midday today, Friday 11th August, to midday on Sunday 13th August. It will cover the areas from Northgate to Middlegate, then Middlegate to St Hilda’s Crescent, Victoria Place to Moor Terrace and The Promesade to Sea View Terrace.
