Plans to turn off some street lights in the early hours in Easingwold and Thirsk will be discussed this morning.

Hambleton Council reckons it would save more than 24-thousand pounds a year by turning some lights off after midnight.

North Yorkshire County Council is already rolling out a similar plan.

Brian Philips from Hambleton Council says it doesn't seem to have led to a rise in crime.
