FOUR teenagers from Berwickshire were arrested by police in Berwick on Saturday night and into the early hours of Sunday morning following reported incidents of drunk and disorderly behaviour in the town centre.

A 17-year-old Reston man has been charged on suspicion of being drunk and disorderly, while a 19-year-old Eyemouth man was given a caution. A 17-year-old from Ayton and a 16-year-old from Chirnside were both given reprimands.

Inspector Sharon Wilmore-Greaves said: “Northumbria Police encourages people to enjoy their Christmas, but we will be conducting stringent checks around the pubs and clubs in Berwick over the Christmas period and drivers will also be routinely checked to ensure they are complying with drink drive limits.”
