Night Safe Marshalls to patrol North Yorkshire towns

Extra patrols have been brought into two North Yorkshire towns in a bid to tackle drunken behaviour.

Harrogate and Northallerton councils have secured funding from the government for Nightsafe Marshalls to patrol the streets at weekends.

The marshalls will offer assistance and support to North Yorkshire Police.

Councillor Nick Brown, of Harrogate Borough Council, said the marshalls would "provide a reassuring presence on the streets".
