CLOSED circuit television cameras could be erected in Melbourn to try and put a stop to anti-social behaviour.
The cameras would be put up in Vicarage Close and at the High Street car park.
At a meeting of Melbourn Parish Council this week, councillors agreed to get quotes on the cost of purchasing and installing the cameras.
Parish council clerk Avril Mellor said: "The councillors received a report from Martin Beaumont, who is CCTV manager at Cambridge City Council, detailing what would be involved to get cameras in.

Vicarage Close is the home to many elderly people who live in a sheltered housing complex. This area has been the target for anti-social behaviour in the past.
