Police officers have been targeting identified issues and local priorities in towns across the area.

A male was found in possession of cannabis following a stop search in Silloth on October 14. On the same day an E-scooter was seized after a youth was found riding down Station Street in Cockermouth; a vehicle was uplifted on behalf of DVLA for having no tax in Aspatria and two drivers were reported for driving without in insurance in Silloth and Keswick.

Police have also highlighted issues with the one-way system in Keswick and are appealing to people to adhere to the signs.

"We are aware that some drivers are not following the one-way system on Station Street and St John's Street in Keswick," said a spokesman.

"The one-way road starts on Station Street and goes round onto St John's Street. There is sufficient 'no entry' signs and markings and 'one way' signs in the area. "There is a large footfall of pedestrians in this area and to avoid injury or incidents, drivers should drive to the rules of the road. Officers will be paying attention to this issue while in the area."

The police have made an appeal to parents before halloween and bonfire night.

"Unfortunately, we see a rise in anti-social behaviour at this time of the year, and we are encouraging parents to speak to children about the effect that their behaviour can have on others, and that some people may find this the year difficult," said the spokesman.
