'Street pastor' proposal

A businessman has put forward proposals to tackle late night drinking in Perth by sending churchgoers out onto the streets at weekends.

Michael Archibald said that similar "street pastor" schemes had helped tackle drink-fuelled anti-social behaviour in Manchester and Birmingham. Teams of two pastors on the streets could help people in difficulty while out drinking late at night.

Development of the idea is at a very early stage.
