Police were out and about in Cookstown late last night reminding drivers to show "consideration" to local residents.

The Local Neighbourhood Officers were on patrol in the Fairhill area of the town where householders have been plagued by anti-social behaviour from motorists and patrons coming from entertainment venues.
The PSNI clamped down over Christmas on the antics of 'boy racers' causing annoyance in the area after complaints by residents and local politicians. The local Neighbourhood Team, along with PCSP and Mid Ulster Council have come together to create a leaflet which is entitled "Fairhill-Fair Warning" alongside large prominently placed posters asking drivers to show respect for the residents and wider driving public.
"We also reminded drivers that we have the power to seize vehicles that cause alarm, distress or are a nuisance," said a police spokesperson.
