BRIGHT pink lights which show up acne are the latest weapon in the war on yobs.
They have been successful in moving on youngsters from trouble spots.
Dave Hey, of the Safer Neighbourhood Partnership in Scunthorpe, said: "The pink is not seen as macho among young men and apparently it highlights acne and blemishes in the skin."

Humberside Police added: "It's worth considering."
