Unruly youths went on a drunken rampage when they damaged a bus window and tried to walk on railway tracks.

The drunk youngsters argued with passers by and got into a row before a bus window was damaged.

They moved on to a railway station where a boy was injured and one of them tried to walk along the railway tracks but was stopped by British Transport Police.

The yobs were reported to have been arguing with people at 9pm on Wednesday in Ferring Street, Worthing, before the trouble continued at Goring railway station.

Sussex Police said the youngsters “would not engage with officers and no offences were identified”.

One bystander said the “unruly teens were running amok and causing grief to retailers, while a serious crash was being dealt with less than a half a mile away”.

The Argus previously investigated issues with antisocial behaviour in Worthing as shops reported being repeatedly shoplifted and a railway station waiting room was set alight by teens.

Behaviour got so bad in the area that 11 headteachers from schools in the area wrote to parents about the “ongoing reports of violence and antisocial behaviour”.

Headteachers said in December last year that they are doing everything in their powers “to keep our students safe” – including working with Sussex Police, youth justice and other children’s services in the area.

A Sussex Police spokesman said: “It was reported that a large group of youths had been arguing with people and there had been some form of altercation. A bus window had been damaged and this is under investigation.

“They had moved on to Goring railway station where they were causing further issues, but they would not engage with officers and no offences were identified. This included a young male who had suffered a minor injury to his arm that did not require treatment.

“One of the youths tried to walk along the railway tracks and was dealt with by British Transport Police.

“Anyone who witnessed any of the incidents or has any information is asked to report online or call 101 quoting serial 1576 of 12/07.”
