Have your say

Police investigations are continuing today (Sunday) after more than 100 youths gathered in Douglas last night.

Officers say the teenagers were behaving anti-socially and causing problems on Johnny Watterson’s Lane after midnight.

They say they’re investigating public order and alcohol-related offences this morning, after parents were asked to come and collect their drunk children.

Police said on Facebook at the height of the incident: ‘100+ Youths causing issues in Watterson Lane with Anti-Social Behaviour. Officers report some very poor attitudes and there will be follow-ups in relation to alcohol related offences (parents are currently being asked to come and collect their drunk charges)’

The incident follows a similar problem in Castletown last weekend
