Residents in Leeds have been delighted to learn that their local area will benefit from security fencing
in a bid to stop anti-social behaviour.
According to the Guardian, people living in a part of the West Yorkshire city's Moortown area have suffered several incidents of yobbish behaviour and burglaries.
But now that local councillors have given the go-ahead for security fencing
to be installed it is hoped such future incidents will be stopped.
Brenda Lancaster, a local Liberal Democrat councillor, secured funding from the Area Committee after working closely with the police and local people to come up with a solution to the problems.
"It has been frustrating that the issue has taken so long to resolve and I would like to thank local residents for their patience. The security fencing
is long overdue and will finally provide some welcome extra security for residents," the news provider reported Ms Lancaster as saying.
This week it was also announced that metal gates
look certain to be installed at an alleyway in Bradford to shut out nuisance gangs.
The Telegraph & Argus reported that people living in the Wrose area of the city had suffered racist abuse.
