A PUBLIC meeting will be held next Monday between police and residence following concern over youth "intimidating" people in Blackwall and Cubitt Town.

Cllr Tim Archer has arranged the meeting on November 23 at St. John's Community Centre on Glengall Grove on Monday at 7.30pm.

He said: "I hear of kids hanging around street corners throwing eggs and stones or spitting at residents. There is a lack of respect and people are feeling intimidated."

According to Archer his ward has seen a 45 per cent increase in overall crime.
