A panel including police, senior councillors and firefighters will be quizzed by city centre residents tomorrow about actions being taken to reduce anti-social behaviour in the early hours.

The stakeholders' forum will take place at The King's Centre on King Street at 5.30pm.

City councillor Ben Price said: 'Everybody has a stake in the late night economy, residents, police, the council and local businesses including the clubs. If everybody can come to the meeting with the will to work towards reducing the problems and also identify the barriers to overcoming them, then we will have a platform to start the real task of making the overdue and much needed improvements.'

There are still a limited number of places left in the audience. Anyone wishing to attend the meeting should contact Mr Price immediately on or on 01603 621709.
