North Wales Police to clamp down on Cowny free runners


Police in Conwy have promised to take action to reduce the anti-social behaviour linked to free running.

Officers believe that with the increasing trend of youths running across the roofs of buildings in the Llandudno area, including schools, shops, offices and churches, it is only a matter of time before someone falls and is seriously injured or killed.

Sergeant James Keene of the West Conwy safer neighbourhood team, said; “If you participate in free running, using street furniture or private or public buildings, you are putting yourself and others at risk of serious injury. You could also cause criminal damage to property.

“We want to educate the young people who do this about the dangers. However, to ensure their own safety we will prosecute those who commit these offences in a bid to deter others and also to reassure the wider public that we are dealing with this extremely dangerous anti-social behaviour.

“If you witness people free running across buildings or have any information about such incidents, please call Police on 101.”
