"Anyone with information should contact police on 101 or can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111."

The increase in patrols come as problems were raised by a local ward councillor in Calderdale.

Anti-social behaviour including children making home-made flame-throwers are threatening to drive residents of a Calderdale village out of their homes, councillors were told at a meeting of full Council.
