On Friday 01 June I held my sixteenth coffee morning on anti-social behaviour at Silksworth Youth and Community Centre, which provided an opportunity for residents to raise their concerns about a number of local and national issues.
We were joined by PC Kirsty Smith, who discussed current problems with anti-social behaviour in Silksworth and the surrounding areas, particularly motorcycle disorder, littering, and flytipping.
PC Smith outlined the steps the police are taking to address these issues, and it is clear that despite the significant financial pressure on Northumbria Police due to government cuts, officers are doing their best to tackle anti-social behaviour.
I hold similar events for constituents throughout the year, where you can meet with me and your local police officer, and discuss the issues affecting our community as well as my work in Parliament. If you would like to attend a future event, please email me at: email@example.com
