The order lasted from 5pm on Wednesday, April 28 until 5pm the next day.

In a post on Facebook, Shirebrook SNT said: “This means that persons can be directed to leave for the duration of the order and can be arrested if they fail to comply.

“The reason for this is to act as a deterrent following a recent spate of anti-social behaviour in the area.”

Police uploaded a map of the affected areas.
