PEOPLE in Ashby are avoiding the much-loved Bath Grounds because of 'intimidating' youngsters, it has been claimed.
Protectors Friends of the Bath Grounds have raised concerns about the level of antisocial behaviour in the area and are worried it could be about to increase during the school holidays.
The group has posted pictures on its Facebook page of beer cans, bottles and litter strewn across the grounds – a no-drinking zone.
It is asking people to report any cases of antisocial behaviour and is calling on police to take the matter seriously.
A statement on its website said: "There have been a number of incidents concerning the drinking of alcohol and vandalism over the last few weeks."
