Fresh crackdown on skateboarding outside Firstsite
2:00pm Saturday 12th April 2014 in News
A fresh crackdown on skateboarding and anti-social behaviour outside Firstsite is being launched to stop it increasing over the school holidays.
Skateboarders have gathered outside the Lewis Gardens gallery since it opened in September 2011, leading the council to impose a ban seven months later.
In September 2013 the council then spent £10,000 installing 146 metal studs to stop skateboarders using the seats for tricks but some continue to gather there.
Over the past few months the police and council have been meeting to discuss the issue.
