Brent Police and the council have rolled out a dispersal zone in parts of Kilburn blighted by criminal and yobbish behaviour.

Allegations ranging from yobs fighting, urinating in the street, drinking excessively in public and intimidating members of the public have resulted in several roads becoming a no go zone for groups of more than two people.

This is the second time that parts of Kilburn have been slapped with a dispersal zone after a similar action was taken in March last year.

The six-month long action will come in to force yesterday (Monday) at noon and ends on February 13 next year.

Anyone moved on is not allowed to return to the area within 24 hours and if they refuse to move they can be arrested.

Police will patrol the areas and anyone convicted of breaching the order faces up to three months in jail or a fine of up to £2,500.

Sergeant Graeme Day, from Kilburn Safer Neighbourhoods Team, said: “The anti-social behavior that has been displayed in the Kilburn area will not be tolerated any longer.

“We will continue to carry out high visibility patrols in the area and target offenders. It is our aim, that every resident, business or visitor in Kilburn enjoys the right to live and work in peace without being harassed, alarmed or distressed.

“We will continue to work to identify those responsible and deal with them robustly.”

“To ensure we police this order as effectively as possible, I ask residents to continue to notify us of any anti-social activity taking place in the area.”

To contact Sgt Day call 020 8721 2020 or 07843 291 102 and leave a message if no one answers.

Alternatively you can email Brentkilburn.snt@met.police.uk.

Any information received will be kept in confidence.
