Police issued a dispersal order after multiple teenagers gathered and acted anti-socially when they got off a train.

Hertfordshire Constabulary says it received reports of a large crowd gathering around Chorleywood railway station at 9.45pm on Friday, June 11.

Up to 100 teenagers had got off the train and were gathering in the area and acting anti-socially.

They appear to have left the area without incident, the force said.

But due to the gathering, police put in place a dispersal order around Chorleywood under section 35 of the Anti-social, Crime and Policing Act.

This order gives officers additional powers to disperse crowds and people who refuse to leave can be arrested.

The order was in place until  5am on Saturday.
