A new CCTV system has been installed at Alnwick Bus Station to help reduce anti-social behaviour.

It comes after concerns were raised from members of the public about a rise in criminal activity by young people in and around the station.

“We hope this will help prevent any further incidents, helping us improve the overall journey experience for our customers and reduce anti-social behaviour for local residents.”

Heavy rain causes flooding in Alnwick

Heavy rainfall has caused flash flooding in a Northumberland market town.

Flood water travelled down the streets of Alnwick, including Clayport Bank and Narrowgate this morning causing manhole covers to pop due to the volume of water.

Northumberland Fire and Rescue Service has dispatched gully tankers to the town and fire officers are assisting with pumping at one property.

Denwick Lane currently remains closed.
