ANTI-SOCIAL behaviour and speeding in villages will be tackled by police.

The promise came after residents agreed on the latest policing priorities for their neighbourhood.

Residents from Melbourn and the sur-rounding area were invited to attend the second policing panel meeting.

It gave them the opportunity to be updated on the work the neighbourhood policing team have been doing over the past three months.

They were also asked to discuss priorities for the team in the coming months.

Sgt Mark Kathro, who led the neighbourhood policing team, said: "We suggested some priorities which the residents have adopted."

These were to target youth related anti-social behaviour in Melbourn and to also tackle speeding across the neighbourhood.

Sgt Kathro said: "Neighbourhood policing is about giving the public a chance to play an active role in the policing of their neighbourhood.

"By doing this we hope to create safer neighbourhoods and raising confidence and satisfaction in policing.
