A pubwatch meeting took place at a pub in Newthorpe this week as part of a week of action against drugs and alcohol.

Landlords met at The New Inn with licensing officer Paul Horton to talk about what drugs to look out for.

The week of action runs from September 16 to 22.

Police will be deployed in drinking and antisocial behaviour hotspots and will be speaking to new students in fresher’s week about staying safe.

There will also be age ID checks, drug swabbing and drink drive operations. Licensing teams will work with partners conducting test purchasing operations for shops and bars.
