Sergeant Russ Whittle of Humberside Police, aid: “This kind of behaviour will not be tolerated.

“I would like to reassure residents that we are doing all we can to find those responsible and that there will be increased patrols in the area.

“We are also working closely with our partners in housing and Hull City Council and will be seeking to remove those found to be involved in antisocial behaviour from the area.

“With this in mind, I would appeal to parents to ensure you know where your children are and what they are doing. If they are found to be involved it could lead to your tenancy agreement being revoked – costing you your home.”

The main suspect is described as a white boy, aged 16 to 17, 5ft 8in tall, of slim build, with blonde hair. He wore a grey tracksuit.

Anyone with information about the incident or those involved, who has not yet spoken to police, is asked to call 101, quoting log number 555 of October 15.
