App helps keep revellers safe

REVELLERS in Newcastle and Hamilton now have a new piece of technology at their disposal to make their evenings safer.

The Newcastle After Dark smartphone app, launched this morning, is designed to promote personal safety and gives users the tools to be able to travel around safely.

It also provides information on the various forms of available transport, safe walking routes and useful contacts. The project is an initiative of Newcastle City Council, police and industry partners.
