POLICE and council officials are launching a clampdown on an infamous dogging area.

The public area at Brockeridge Common, in Ripple, near Upton, is being advertised on the internet as somewhere for people to meet and have sex.

Users of the site are parking on a lay -by on the A38 and then jumping over a fence into a wooded area.

A spokesman for Tewkesbury Borough Council said the illegal activity at the site is causing concerns for residents as well as problems with littering.

Talks have taken place between police, council officers and Gloucestershire Highways and action is being promised to tackle the problems.

The site will be closely monitored by police, and the council is working with the land owner to encourage clearance of the land to make the site more visible from the road.
