PEOPLE are being urged to sign a second petition in support of the popular pop-campaign.

The campaign is seeking to get glass banned in late night bars and clubs and has been set up by city resident Marjorie Golding, whose son Blake was the victim of a glass attack in the city on Christmas Day eight years ago.

Campaign representatives presented 2,500 of the signatures from the original petition to Downing Street last Tuesday and have called for a Parliamentary debate on the subject.

So far the petition has gained more than 116,000 supporters. However, the group was advised to set up a second petition, which can be signed again by those who have already done so.

Mrs Golding said: “Although we have handed in the previous petition, we have been advised as a back-up, to create a second one so that in case we do not get the parliamentary debate we have asked for, we can go back fighting even harder with a second petition. “
