Crackdown on anti-social behaviour in Grimsby

A major crackdown on anti-social behaviour has begun in Grimsby, on a street where police say they've received dozens of complaints from residents and businesses.

North East Lincolnshire Council and Humberside Police say the problems on Freeman Street are often linked to street drinking. A 'Public Space Protection Order' is already in place in the area, which enables officers to confiscate alcohol and issue fines.

Some businesses say the problems are so bad though they're driving away trade.

Rotherham United sign Bournemouth goalkeeper Lee Camp

Rotherham United have signed goalkeeper Lee Camp from Premier League AFC Bournemouth, subject to Football League ratification.

The Millers swooped for the Northern Ireland international stopper just minutes before the transfer window slammed shut, after coming to an agreement with the player and his representatives this afternoon at AESSEAL New York Stadium.

As a result of Lee's arrival the Millers have allowed loanee Kelle Roos to return to Derby County.

"I am delighted that we have been able to secure the services of such an experienced Championship goalkeeper.

The lad played against the Millers on three occasions last season and our supporters will have seen it first hand the qualities he possesses. Lee had a number of options presented to him from other Championship clubs, but after much consideration he has decided that his future lies at the AESSEAL New York Stadium.

As soon as I became aware that there was a possibility of bringing Lee Camp to Rotherham United I immediately spoke with my counterpart at Derby County regarding the possibility of young Kelle being recalled back to the iPro Stadium.

I must thank Paul Clement for his full understanding in the matter and we all wish young Kelle a bright and successful future."
