PEOPLE caught with alcohol and causing a nuisance on the Wheatfields recreation area of St Ives could have their liquor confiscated by the police.
Huntingdonshire District Council is considering making a designated public places order for Wheatfields following "numerous complaints".
Sonia Hansen, development and community manager at HDC, said: "The order would give police the powers to take alcohol off people if they are causing a nuisance and is the result of a number of
complaints received by the council."

INFORMATION: A meeting is being held on Wednesday, December 13, at 2pm at HDC's offices in Pathfinder House, Huntingdon, to discuss the proposal. If approved by the district council a 28 day public notice would be published prior to the order being enforced.
