AS a long time visitor to the Bournemouth/Poole/Christchurch area and online reader of your Echo website, there does seem a lot of negative/bad news regarding anti-social behaviour at the moment.

Although this is a problem nationwide and not helped by cuts to the police, the only difference being that holiday makers/visitors to your area, say being from areas around the north as an example, come on holiday to get away from stuff like that.

They don't expect to be confronted by trouble on buses or yobs at Poole bus station etc, but the bad news for the Bournemouth area is that if these things are not taken in hand they can take their money elsewhere.
