TWO benches have been removed by police in an attempt to crack down on anti social behaviour.

Officers hope the move will stop people congregating at The Triangle in Bournemouth.

A spokesman for Bournemouth South Police said: "Two benches have had to be removed in the Triangle as they just weren't being used for the right purposes unfortunately."

Officers said they are working with colleagues from BCP Council to try to reduce problems in the area.

They urged anyone with information about anti-social behaviour to report it on 101 or online.
