Host: Jonathan Wills, Presenter of ITV News Anglia at 6pm

The conference will be hosted by Jonathan Wills, ITV’s 6pm nightly news presenter for the Anglia region. 

Jonathan has been presenting the programme for over a decade.  Before joining ITV News Anglia, Jonathan was a correspondent at ITN. In addition, Jonathan is a Royal Television Society Presentation Award Winner. 

Jonathan says:

“It is always an honour to be invited to events like this. Sadly, all too often on ITV News Anglia, we have to report on stories involving anti-social behaviour, and can see the terrible impact it can have on businesses right across the region. 

“Hopefully, as well as discussing the issues at the event, we can offer some possible solutions, thanks to the excellent panel that Co-op Secure Response has assembled.”

He looks forward to meeting as many of the audience on the day as possible.
