A FENCE will be put up around the Firstsite art gallery’s garden to tackle antisocial behaviour.

Colchester Council will fence off the D-shaped lawn so it can only be accessed through the building.

The council did not say if a specific incident had prompted the decision to install the fence. A 12ft tall pane of glass next to the main entrance was smashed on Thursday.
