CCTV call to cut crime

Last week, two young men were attacked and mugged in the Telfer underpass which links Caledonian Crescent to Dundee Street.

In a previous incident, in 2009, a woman was subjected to a serious sexual assault after being attacked in the underpass.

These incidents are greatly concerning to local residents who regularly use the underpass and will once again raise the question of its safety.

I want to see the Council working with police to install CCTV to reassure the public that the route is safe and to deter crime and antisocial behaviour.
