Beer beat bobbies.

EXTRA patrols will be mounted in a seaside town to ensure people have a safe and happy Easter. Officers will be making high-visibility tours around Whitley Bay during the busiest periods. They will visit pubs, clubs and offlicences to remind staff not to serve alcohol to under 18s.

A taxi marshals scheme, organised by the North Tyneside Strategic Partnership, will also be operating on South Parade, in Whitley Bay, and Front Street, in Tynemouth, to improve safety during the evenings.

Chief Insp Max Black, of North Tyneside Area Command, said: "Easter holidays traditionally herald the start of people visiting the town to enjoy our seaside facilities and, we hope, good weather.

"We want to make sure this is not spoilt by a small minority of people who are involved in anti-social behaviour, drunkenness or crime."
