Lincolnshire Police are putting a dispersal order in place for Boston Town Centre this weekend.

The order, which begins at 9pm tonight (Friday) and ends Sunday at 6am, will cover town centre in the same general area as the current Designated Public Place Order (DPPO).

A Lincolnshire Police spokesman said this was part of general procedure and had recently been done in other towns including Louth.

The force is also looking to relaunch its OpNova (No to Violence and Abuse) campaign to raise awareness of and prevent violence both domestic and general.
