Rugby coaching to tackle bad behaviour in Leicester

Rugby training sessions are being offered to teenagers to help tackle anti-social behaviour in Leicester.

The scheme has been organised by police, the Youth Offending Service, Rugby Football Union and The Emerald Centre in Gyspy Lane.

Coaches from several local clubs will also be involved.

Pc Mark Lacey said: "The events are focussed at getting young lads into rugby and the local clubs and diverting them away from offending."
