THOUSANDS of youngsters in Wokingham are being asked to take part in a survey aimed at tackling crime.

The youth community safety survey, organised by Wokingham Borough Council, lasts until May 24 and is open to all 11 to 18-year-olds at school in the borough. It is part of the council's annual Safe Communities Survey which gathers the views of residents.

The survey asks what issues affect them and what they would like the council, police, and other services to do to make them feel safer.

The results will be used to help reduce crime.
