New lighting project 'will help cut crime'.

A MULTI-million pound plan to replace thousands of ageing street lights will help to cut crime, say council officials.

Knowsley council hopes to use pounds 32.7m of government cash to replace about 70% of its lamps over five years, starting in 2010.

If its bid is approved, it would be the first council in Merseyside and only the third in the north west to introduce such a scheme.

Council officials hope the project will cut crime during the day as well as at night, as the street lights would allow CCTV coverage of vulnerable areas.
