Leicester policeman posts student safety videos on YouTube

Help

A policeman has started posting videos on YouTube in an effort to reduce student crime in Leicester.

PC Harvey Watson has enlisted a number of celebrities, including members of the pop group The Saturdays and Britain's Got Talent dance crew Diversity, to help spread messages about personal safety, drinking and home security.

PC Watson, who has worked on the university campus for the past five years, already has more than 1,000 Facebook friends and about 1,000 Twitter followers.

In July, he received an honorary masters degree for his work from the University of Leicester.
