Specialist training for door staff to protect vulnerable people socialising in bars and clubs will be rolled out nationally after a successful trial in Newcastle.
More than 100,000 door staff across the UK will take part in specialised Security Industry Authority (SIA) training.
It's part of a ground breaking initiative, launched by Northumbria PCC Vera Baird, to ensure they can identify vulnerable people and know what steps to take to help protect them.
