POLICE said they have 'dealt with' youths who threw eggs at properties in Ludlow last week, and have sent letters to their parents.

There were seven reports of eggs being thrown between Wednesday and Friday, which Ludlow's safer neighbourhood team said had caused alarm and distress to the victims.

After an investigation by West Mercia Police, anti-social behaviour letters have been sent to the youths' parents to bring to make them away of the behaviour of their children.

Police have asked for their assistance in addressing what they call "unacceptable behaviour", and if it continues, other measures can be taken.
