POLICE have warned abusive youths that they will prosecute them for trespass after a number of incidents at the North Shore Golf Course in Skegness.

Officers from Skegness Neighbourhood Policing Team have warned local youngsters to keep off the golf course following a number of reports of anti-social behaviour in recent weeks.

Apart from a public footpath that runs from the beach to East View Terrace, the course is private property.

PCSO Claire Scott said: “There have been several incidents of young people riding bikes across the greens, interfering with flags and being abusive to members of staff.

“The offenders are putting themselves at risk of injury when they go on to the course and we will identify those responsible and visit them and their parents to issue Unacceptable Behaviour Warning letters.

“Persistent offenders could find themselves facing police action under aggravated trespass legislation,” she added.

Anyone who witnesses anti-social behaviour in the area should contact Lincolnshire Police on 101.
