Curfews 'last resort' says chief

PUBLISHED August 24, 2004

The chief constable of South Wales has said curfews for young people to combat anti-social behaviour should only be used as a last resort.

Barbara Wilding said the curfew in the Splott area of Cardiff, which started last week, worried her.
She wants to ensure that officers and agencies try every other method of controlling youngsters before another curfew is sanctioned.
