Operation Servo will continue to be conducted on a regular basis and the force urged residents to keep an eye on its social media pages for more days of action across Poole's patch.

A Poole Police spokesperson said: “Please continue to report anti-social behaviour (ASB) and drug use to us. It enables us to map data and assess and task resources where they are needed most.”
