Peterborough revellers offered first aid tent

A care tent is to be set up in Peterborough to deal with people who have drunk too much alcohol.

Care workers will work from the shelter in Laxton Square during the evening and in to the early hours of New Year's Day.

The unit is staffed by the NHS and St John Ambulance workers. Police officers will be in an adjoining mobile station.

The same service helped 60 people in 2010. It aims to reduce the number of ambulance call-outs.
