Police in Leicestershire have pleaded with students at De Montfort University, Loughborough University and the University of Leicester to respect their neighbours.

University beat officers are encouraging students to look after their neighbours as the new academic year gets underway.

Officers looking after students at the universities will attend welcome events, visit halls of residence and knock on doors in student populated areas to hand out advice and encourage them to respect their neighbours.

The beat officers are also stressing to students to think about their personal safety.

Councillor Piara Singh-Clair, deputy city mayor and chair of the Safer Leicester Partnership, said: "As a member of the Safer Leicester Partnership the city council is very pleased to be able to support the police in this important work."

"Students make a huge contribution to Leicester and we want them to feel safe, and to be valued members of their local communities."
