Viewfield - Could it become a no-go area?

Concern was raised at the West Community Council meeting last Tuesday about youths drinking in Viewfield. It was reported also that there had been an attempted break-in at the museum and an exhibit had been damaged. Brian Stewart mentioned that at a recent function in the Community Centre he'd heard people saying that they were considering taking another route home rather than go through Viewfield. A representative from Northern Constabulary was present to hear these concerns, it was suggested that successful policing in other areas of the town had led to displacement of young (and not so young drinkers) from areas like the Jubilee Bridge.
