REPORTS of cars racing and revving at a town centre car park during the night are being investigated by police officers.

Colchester officers are aware of vehicles and their owners causing anti-social behaviour in St Mary's car park, in Colchester.

A spokesman for the force said: "We will be working with our partners to deal with those responsible so please act responsibly in your vehicle.

"There are CCTV cameras in the car park and we have been patrolling and will continue to patrol at the times we believe the behaviour is happening.

"There are many houses nearby who are affected by the noise at night from racing and continuous revving of engines that come direct from the car park.

"Please be considerate to others."
