CASH EARMARKED FOR MORE CCTV CAMERAS IN BRIGG
Thousands of pounds are to be spent on improving CCTV surveillance in Brigg - in an effort to identify law-breakers and deter others from committing crimes.
Additional cameras are to be funded by Brigg Town Council, while North Lincolnshire Council is looking to replace another.
The Millennium Green off Elwes Street - the location of a number of incidents of anti-social behaviour - will be a priority.
During is November meeting, Brigg Town Council agreed to spend more than £4,100 on additional cameras, while the North Lincolnshire authority is to replace the existing one which surveys the car park area behind the Angel building. This is said "to be on its last legs."
Noting that there were "some problems" in areas of the town, Coun Jane Kitching said that Brigg people expected the council to improve the CCTV.
