Can you help police tackle anti-social behaviour in Burgess Hill?


Police have appealed to the public for information about anti-social behaviour in Burgess Hill town centre in recent weeks.

Since the beginning of December officers have received 18 reports of anti-social behaviour in the town centre and nine in St John’s Park and surrounding roads.

In one incident, a shopping trolley was thrown from the second storey of The Martlets Car Park in Civic Way, which could have caused serious injury.

Many of the crimes have taken place at the car park and involve shopping trolleys being used to cause damage.

PCSO Karen Iles said: “We are working with partner agencies to combat this problem and local officers and PCSOs are increasing patrols in the area.

“As well as dangerous use of trolleys we’ve also had reports of eggs and flour being thrown at cars and houses in the vicinity.”

Police have asked the public to ensure shopping trolleys are returned to their point of origin and not left in the car park, where possible.

Anyone with information can email or phone 101.

Details can also be passed to police anonymously via the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555111 (
