POLICE have declared a town pubwatch scheme a success a year after its launch.
Hitchin police have said that the scheme, which includes 14 radio-linked premises in the town, has banned eight people in the last year.
Pc Lee Jessup from the Neighbourhood Policing Team said: "Pubwatch allows licensed premises to work together to keep their premises and customers safe. Our message is clear - anti-social or violent behaviour will not be tolerated in Hitchin.
"Meetings occur once and month and are a great opportunity for those working in the licensed trade to get together and discuss any issues.
