The ‘visible guardians’ are equipped with audio and video recording devices and patrol on key dates such as Freshers Week, Halloween and the end of term.

Night patrols aimed at cracking down on rowdy parties in student suburbs will continue this year.

University bosses have renewed a contract to hire security staff to patrol the south Manchester student suburbs of Withington and Fallowfield.

The ‘visible guardians’ are equipped with audio and video recording devices and patrol ‘hotspots’ during Freshers Week and each Wednesday, Friday and Saturday during term time.

The scheme was launched back in 2016 in following a slew of complaints about rowdy house parties which made life a misery for some residents.

Students have been handed noise abatement notices and could be kicked out of university, and prosecuted, if they repeatedly host rowdy parties.

The action is funded by Manchester Metropolitan University and The University of Manchester.

“As part of our ongoing commitment to positive relations and enhancing cohesive communities, we are pleased to be able to continue the night-time community patrols for the next academic year,” they said in a joint statement.
