Under the terms of the order any caught causing issues can be asked to leave the area, while persistent offenders risk being arrested.

A Kent Police spokesman said: "There is currently a dispersal order in place for Ashford town centre and Victoria Park.

"Ashford community officers have been in the locations today providing a visible presence."

Officers encouraged anyone who spots any anti-social behaviour in the area to head to the force website.
