    Q349: Is it illegal to beg in town centres?

    It is an offence to beg in a public place and the person can be arrested for committing such an offence. If you see a police officer or a community support officer in the vicinity, you may inform them or alternatively telephone your local police (via 101) and inform them of the location and a description of the person begging.
