If you're a resident of Beeston in Nottinghamshire, a new survey shows you should be keeping a close eye on your partner.

According to The Official Infidelity Index 2015, two and a half per cent of the town's population is having an affair, meaning 954 residents are seeing someone they shouldn't.

Nottinghamshire's Police and Crime Commissioner will today visit a project which sees young volunteers cleaning up local 'grot spots'.

The Aspley Communities Taking Control Programme works with young people aged between 19 and 23 who are unemployed and at risk of becoming involved in antisocial behaviour.

They work together to clean up untidy areas in their community by mending fences, painting, and tidying up gardens. The young people can nominate themselves to take part or they can be nominated by their parents.

Organisers say the project is designed to prevent crime and give volunteers work experience.

Nottinghamshire's Police and Crime Commissioner Paddy Tipping has invested £10,000 in the scheme.

"This project is not only helping to combat crime in the local area but is also giving young people the valuable skills they need to secure employment.

"By building self-esteem and giving young people a focus, as well as pride in their work, we are helping them to build a better life path for themselves - one that doesn't involve breaking the law.

"The scheme is already delivering positive outcomes for the young participants involved I'm very pleased to offer my support to enable project leaders to help more individuals."

– Commissioner Tipping

The Aspley Partnership, which runs the programme, says that 87 per cent of participants in the last four courses have gone on to find employment. The project offers young people job interview classes and funds suits for real interviews.

"Young people are often at the receiving end of negative stereotyping, particularly where antisocial behaviour and disorder are concerned.

"This project challenges these views by allowing residents to see youngsters working hard to clean-up their neighbourhoods and making a positive contribution to the community."

– Cllr Carole McCulloch, project leader
