TAXI firms and drivers in Great Yarmouth have become the latest weapon in a successful clampdown on unruly behaviour in the town at night- time.

Albies and Swift Taxis have signed up to the Nightsafe scheme to help keep Yarmouth's streets free from drunken yobs and troublemakers.

By being given radios to patch into Nightsafe, it is hoped taxi drivers will also be able to help find missing people and be more aware of road accidents.

Nightsafe has 70 members, including the town centre partnership CCTV system, bars, pubs, supermarkets and shops.

Members are told over a radio system to keep an eye out for people banned from pubs and any rowdy groups .
