We are aware that this has become an issue and where anti-social behaviour from the street drinkers are puting a lot of members of he public off using the area. A specific targetted approach with the offenders and increased high visual patrols will take place to provide the centre with the reassurance it requires for members of the public to enjoy their shopping experience.
