A project used to tackle problems with anti-social behaviour in Porth has been voted one of the best crime prevention initiatives in the whole of Europe. A BMX track was built in Trehafod in 2009 and since then the number of residential complaints have been halved.
PC Nigel Bird, who led the initiative, says: "It was amazing to learn that police officers in all corners of the European Union face the exact same kind of problems that we do in south Wales. The BMX track was the result of lots of hard work by many different organisations."
