A Powys town is pushing forward plans to combat anti-social behaviour caused by a small number of drinkers.

Welshpool Town Council has been seeking support from police and the county council to impose a legal order to deal with the problem.

It has set up a confidential phone line for people to raise concerns or they can call police on 101.

And it is carrying out a survey of people's views for its case as it does not have the power to impose an order.

This week, Wrexham County Borough Council agreed to impose a legal order giving police and its officials authority to issue £100 fixed penalty fines to people causing anti-social behaviour in the town centre.
