If you go down to the Common today you might get a big surprise…….

A Section 35 dispersal order is in place over nearly all of Epsom Common until 5.54pm today Monday 18 July.

The Dispersal Order covers the areas of the Epsom and Ashtead Commons within the A243, Christchurch Road, Craddocks Avenue and Dorking Road. It was authorised by Acting Insp Will Cottee following reports of anti-social behaviour in the area. See map below.

The Dispersal Order gives officers the power to ask a group of two or more people to leave the dispersal area if they are committing anti-social behaviour, or if a constable believes they may, or are likely to, cause a nuisance to someone else.

Surrey Police urge members of the public to continue reporting any incidents of anti-social behaviour through private message on social media or on their website https://www.surrey.police.uk/ro/report/asb/asb/report-antisocial-behaviour/.

Epsom and Ewell Times is waiting for Surrey Police to provide further details of the behaviour that has led to this restriction over such a large area. This report will be updated when received.
