This was due to abusive behaviour when challenged by officers about drinking alcohol, the tweet said.

They said it was part of ongoing work to tackle anti-social behaviour in the area and keep the town safe.

This comes after two men were arrested and charged for outraging public decency due to an alleged sex act in the town centre, sparking uproar in the community.
