Antisocial behaviour in Nailsea has dropped ‘significantly’ thanks to a police reward scheme.

Police officers in Nailsea launched the Nailsea Reward Scheme to try to prevent antisocial behaviour in the town over the summer.

Reward cards were handed out to youngsters who could earn points by helping the community and taking part in activities.
