FAMILIES “living in fear” of hundreds of migrants in their town have set up their own security patrols.
Locals say two hotels have been filled by 400 male migrants who they have accused of muggings, and cat-calling to women and schoolgirls.

Mums and dads in Sandiacre, Derbyshire, have now released plans for citizen patrols of the town.
It is in addition to Government-funded security of 24-hour patrols at each hotel.
At a council meeting this week 80 residents turned up to voice their concerns.
One local said he had video footage of twelve men walking around “wielding bats and sticks”.
The asylum-seekers are housed in a 110-room Novotel and neighbouring 100-room Best Western hotel after both were booked up by the Home Office.
One resident, Elizabeth Dawn, said on Facebook: “We’re becoming prisoners in our own homes. We have no rights left.”
Locals said police had been called out to “trouble” but the force was unable to provide details.
A Derbyshire Police spokeswoman said the force was aware of posts on social media regarding the migrants but there had not been “a significant rise” in reports of crime in the town.
