Children bringing in rubbish and destroying the vegetation

We live backing onto the Creswell-Clowne Bank line, on Bluebell Walk. Since the summer months groups of children of all ages have decided to ‘play’ along this old trainline embankment pathway. They have become an absolute nuisance and despite many requests to move along they resist. Along with the anti social behaviour its also the total destruction they have now done to the embankment and the existing vegetation is now non existent. They have broken all the trees & bushes, brought in copious amounts of rubbish and dug the embankment away. If you wish to inspect this eyesore, then go along the embankment until you are parallel with the small two house cul de sac (a branch of Hawthorne Ave, Creswell). They have made a contraption to climb over the fence from this cul de sac of Hawthorne Ave. We have notified the Bolsover CAN Ranger who has in turn informed the local police of their unacceptable behaviour, as they are intent on destroying the pathway and embankment along with their language and abuse we cop from them too, as they look into our property. Here’s hoping you may have some kind of solution.
