New gates lock out crime

Have your say

New gates have been erected as part of a bid to tackle crime and anti-social behaviour in a Mansfield town centre alley.

The new gates will allow police and local businesses to close off Clerkson’s Alley, which runs between Clumber Street and the Market Place.

The area is used as a busy cut-through by shoppers during the day, but had become a hotbed for drug use after dark, as well as anti-social behaviour including graffiti and people urinating.
