As well as fines being given out to those not paying for travel, Droitwich Police officers were also looking out for incidents of anti-social behaviour and anyone carrying weapons as part of Opration Sceptre.

PC Rich Rees from Droitwich SNT said: “It was a successful operation which was also to examine who was coming into and out of the town.

“Aside from the fare dodgers, most people were well-behaved and there were no other offences committed.”
