UP to 50 children had to be escorted home by police after they were caught drinking alcohol on the streets of Ramsey.
Police were called to reports of rowdy behaviour in Oilmills Road, Ramsey Mereside, at 8pm on Friday, October 16.
When officers arrived at the scene they found a large group of young people drinking alcohol.
The youngsters were spoken to and some of them were issued with warnings and taken home. Alcohol was seized from the youths, and letters will go out to a number of parents this week to inform them of their children's behaviour.
