Newport has become a disgrace, says former councillor
Drinking alcohol in the street and gathering in groups has been banned in an area of Newport following a large-scale disorder.
The city's council unanimously voted for a public space protection order for Pill after youths targeted police with fireworks in November.
Anyone causing a nuisance or disturbance now faces a fine of up to £1,000 through the courts. Police can also issue fixed penalty notices of up to £100.
