RESIDENTS on Commonside Road were once again subject to a night of anti-social behaviour as a crowd of more than a hundred gathered outside an Indian restaurant.

According to residents the large crowd began to gather at just after 4pm on Saturday afternoon outside the Pink Spice Indian restaurant on Commonside Road.

By late evening, the car park, the road and the children’s playground was strewn with broken bottles and litter as the group grew bigger and nosier.

Residents reported people urinating in the streets as well as up against parked cars.

An Essex Police spokesperson said: “We were called at around 8.05pm on Friday 31 July with reports of a large gathering in Commonside Road, Harlow.

We received reports that up to 100 people were gathering in a restaurant and there was concerns about anti-social behaviour.

“There were no other reported incidents and the group dispersed when the restaurant closed”.

The next day, HTS went out and cleaned the park and the nearby streets.
