The move follows an incident over the weekend where stones were thrown from a park at nearby houses.

A spokesman for Nelson, Brierfield and Barrowford Police, said: "These gates are at the bottom of Heyhead Park in Brierfield.

"Some silly young people have been chucking stones at houses on a nearby street. This is really disappointing behaviour. Parents and young people please be aware we will soon be posting photos of offenders in order to identify the culprits. Why can't people just be right and respectful? Those responsible will be dealt with."

Over the weekend police were busy responding to reports of youths throwing stones at the homes of nearby residents

Anyone who witnessed the anti-social behaviour is asked to contact police on 101.
