RESIDENTS and businesses in Chichester fear drunken behaviour and noise in the city centre could get worse.

It comes as a new bus service taking revellers to and from a nightclub was introduced at the weekend.

A new Stagecoach service is now giving people the chance to go to the Vision nightclub in Bognor every Saturday. It takes revellers back to Chichester Bus Station in the early hours of the morning.

This is on top of an existing return bus service which transports people from the station to the recently re-opened Thursdays nightclub in Oving.

Residents said they had noticed an increase in noise, and owners of The Globe Inn pub, near the bus station, said they had already seen fights and trouble occurring.

Stagecoach depot manager Adam Keen said: ‘The bus services for Vision and Thursdays are operated under contract to the nightclubs, so we run them on their behalf. Nothing has been reported to us from any other businesses or members of public and we’ve not had any problems reported by our own staff.’
