Councillor Patricia Logue said
I have received several complaints in recent days about groups of young people camping out in various locations in the city and the associated problems this has created for residents.
I would urge parents to check if their child tells them they are staying overnight in a friend’s house that they actually are. A lot of children get caught up in peer pressure and when you have ten, twenty young people out all night unsupervised then it can lead to problems.
The residents that have spoken to me are not trying to be killjoys ,they know it’s the summer and young people want a bit of adventure but when you are kept up all night with groups of teenagers drinking and carrying-on close to your home it’s certainly not fun for them.
