More than 1300 people in Wisbech have signed a petition calling for a drinking ban on the town's streets.

Local businesses and residents say they want a zero tolerance policy to drunk and disorderly behaviour there.

Apparently some residents have said they are frightened to use certain hotspots in the town, such as Tillery Park and St Peters Gardens.

The petition is due to be handed to Fenland District Council and Cambridgeshire County Council.
