POLICE are looking for beggars targeting people using cash machines, bars, clubs, theatres and cinemas in Sheffield city centre.

The issue was raised at a meeting between residents, traders, police and partner agencies to discuss issues of concern that they agree should be tackled as a priority.

A South Yorkshire Police spokesman said: “The offences tend to take place in the evening, with offenders trying to take advantage of visitors to the city centre.

“We agreed to look at this matter as a priority.”
