Brighton MP tackles anti-social behaviour

Simon Kirby, the Brighton Kemptown MP, is calling on Brighton and Hove City Council and the police to look into the issue of anti-social behaviour in Woodingdean.

Mr Kirby has been surveying his constituents in the area and has found that anti-social behaviour is an issue concerning a number of residents.
