YOUTHS were made to pick up their litter - and answer to their parents - after being caught by police staff! 

Taunton PCSOs Alex, George, Pete, Joe, Will, Lyndsay, Gina, Jason and Vlad have been patrolling in their areas this weekend, with a spokesperson saying they were 'focusing on disrupting anti-social behaviour, providing a high visibility presence and reassurance to the community'.

And among the incidents they dealt with was one in the Killams/Holway area.

"There were a large group of youths gathering in the area of Killams/Holway with plenty of litter left, noise and high spirits," the spokesperson said.

"Alcohol was seized, parents called and litter picked up by those involved."
