Residents of a seaside town which has just six PCSOs now pay £100 each a year for a private security firm to patrol their streets
Hundreds of residents in a seaside town are paying a security firm more than £100-a-year to patrol their streets because of a lack of police.
Security company AGS drives around Frinton-on-Sea in Essex every night between 7pm and 7am and also has an emergency phoneline - although they call 999 if the situation is very serious. Residents say they are paying AGS because because it has no police station or police officers and only six PCSOs who must travel around by bus or bike.
