Greater Manchester Police's Chief Constable Garry Shewan has responded to figures which claim Manchester is the 'anti-social capital' of Britain.
Mr Shewan said anti-social behaviour is a "blight" on people's lives, he added:
Greater Manchester Police has had significant reductions in anti-social behaviour (ASB), and the number of incidents is falling year-on-year. However, the Force is not complacent given that the total number of incidents ending February 2013 was 134,233.
Public perception of ASB as a problem has fallen, as have reported incidents, and there has been a rise in perceptions that the police and partners are tackling local problems and doing a good job.
