Warning signs alert Brighton residents to antisocial behaviour campaign

Residents in a Brighton town have installed warning signs in a park to spread the news about a petition to combat antisocial behaviour.

Locals in Hove think the introduction of eco-friendly lights in St Ann's Well Gardens will help to stop the park becoming a "no-go" area, according to the Argus.

Over 1,000 people have signed a petition calling on Brighton and Hove City Council to provide funding for the lighting proposal, which looks likely to be introduced.

Campaigners have installed warning signs in St Ann's to advertise the petition.

It calls for "wildlife-friendly" lighting along the main paths and entrance to the gardens.

There are concerns that the lack of lighting at night is making people feel unsafe.

Ward councillor Melanie Davis told the newspaper: "The park is used as a cut-through by people of all ages but after dark a number of people have commented on how unsettled they feel.

"By getting better lighting we can open up the park to a greater audience while making people feel safe."

At least 1,250 signatures are needed to get the issue debated by councillors, the newspaper said.

A popular spot in Hove, St Ann's has a bowling green, tennis courts, children's playground and a cafe.ADNFCR-2754-ID-800275967-ADNFCR
