A spree of anti-social behaviour incidents in Chatteris - including people being shot at with pellets - has prompted increased police patrols.
Cars and mopeds are being driven dangerously along the High Street and those driving and riding them have been gathering at Furrowfields car park.
There have also been three reports this month of a BB gun being fired from vehicles, twice in the direction of members of the public, near The George Hotel, in High Street, and in London Road.
A resident of London Road also reported pellets causing damage to windows at his home.
No one has been injured but several complaints have been received this summer.
