Inspector Jason Booth, of South Yorkshire Police, said: "We have been trying to increase our visible presence in Woodhouse over recent weeks due to more reports of street drinking and people feeling unsafe due to the drunken behaviour of some people.

"We have been out speaking with local shop keepers and residents about the problems.

"One male who was drunk and abusive in Market Square was arrested for his behaviour.

"We have more patrols planned."
