'˜We're here to work alongside the community to try and keep people safe and to help with everyone's enjoyment of the area.'

Councillor Steve Pitt, cabinet member for culture leisure and sport, said: '˜There's so much going on in Southsea and along the seafront and these extra seafront patrols are great to help keep the area tidy and safer.'
