Huntingdon residents shared their views and experiences with the police and crime commissioner for Cambridgeshire, Sir Graham Bright, today (Wednesday).
Alongside a team from Huntingdon police station, and Deputy Chief Constable Mark Hopkins, Sir Graham was giving the public the chance to voice their concerns.
“This afternoon has been very good, we have talked to dozens of people and most of them are very happy,” said Sir Graham.
The main concern reported to the team was a perceived increase in people drinking in the town centre.
“Only a few people do it but were are trying to get on top of it. There was a problem around the market square – there has been a order put there to stop this,” added Sir Graham.
Residents were also sharing their thoughts about motorists driving through the pedestrianised-area of the town centre when the gates are open at the end of High Street.
“Huntingdon is a safe and secure place to live and we want to keep it that way.”
