Police Sergeant Disgusted With Attitude Of Partygoers

Young people who held an unauthorised party in the Garrison football hut last Sunday have been branded as “disgusting” by our Islands’ Police Sergeant after they refused to clean up the mess they made.

Sergeant Colin Taylor says the group spilt beer on the school kids’ football kit, and left litter in and around the building, which means they won’t be able to use the changing facilities this weekend.

Officers were called out to the party around midnight following complaints of noise and nuisance.

There were concerns that electricity was being extracted from the football hut, which is an offence.

Colin says most of the group, made up of both locals and seasonal workers, have been traced and were told to clear up their mess, but they’ve refused.

Colin told us “these people do not have a community spirit, they’re immature and don’t take responsibility for their actions. They should hang their heads in shame.”

He says they’ve ruined the fun for the islands’ children this weekend.

And Colin says this is the first time he has encountered this attitude on Scilly. In previous situations, the people responsible for parties have always returned to clean up if requested.

Colin says the Police are not here to stop people from enjoying themselves but have to deal with issues that affect other people, such as this.
