A community safety day has been held in Bedford this weekend.
Residents of the Shortstown and New Cardington development were invited to take part in the day of action yesterday.
It was an opportunity for people to meet representatives from the police and fire service as well as local council officers. Residents were encouraged to share their experiences of what it is like living in their area.
It aimed to tackle anti-social behaviour such as littering, dog fouling, graffiti, drug and alcohol misuse, as well as other issues which concern local residents.
