Probe into Cruise West Cumbria car meet

An investigation has been launched into a car event held in Workington last weekend, following reports of anti-social behaviour.

Cruise West Cumbria held an event at the town’s Central car park on Saturday by agreement with Allerdale council.

An Allerdale council spokesman said: “Agreement was given on the basis the event would be run in the same way as a previous meeting last year, which ran very smoothly with no complaints to the council.

“However, this year, the council and police received a series of complaints from residents in the area about issues of antisocial behaviour.

“Following these complaints, the Council has been in contact with the event organisers and is launching a full investigation.

“Given the concerns raised by residents, it is unlikely that agreement will be given again for this type of event to be held on Central car park.”

It was the group’s 10th anniversary and Cruise West Cumbria describes itself as helping to bridge the gap between so-called cruisers, the police, media and authorities.
