MISBEHAVING YOBS who targeted a supermarket have been identified by their school.

Security and police patrols were stepped up at Asda's Grimethorpe store after weeks of problems with abusive youths. 

CCTV footage of the youths was viewed by South Yorkshire Police and staff from Outwood Academy, Shafton.

Lisa Allott, the school’s principal, said: “The academy was approached by South Yorkshire Police who are investigating an allegation of antisocial behaviour which occurred at the Asda in Grimethorpe.

“We were asked to help identify some teenagers from CCTV footage obtained by Asda. The incident took place in the evening, outside school hours and those concerned were not wearing school uniform.

“The academy takes its responsibility as a member of the community seriously and would appeal to any members of the public who may have witnessed the incidents to support the police and Asda in their investigations.”

Name,shame and enforce action, these underage yobs thrive on the fact they think they can "Run-a-muck" because of very little consequence.
Sick to death of having to dodge scooters and push bikes in main entrance, then having to listen to their neanderthal chuntering and grunting when you ask them to move or try and get past them.
Nothing better to do with their time apart from disrupt customers shopping trips and leach the free wifi. Turn off free wifi, its a shame, but its being abused.

Went to this ASDA twice and both times had to listen to screaming, swearing and just extremely anti-social behaviour from these kids. My children were with me, they are 6, 7 and 12. Needless to say we haven't been back!
