Urban regeneration schemes have helped to turn round the Moss Side area of Manchester, BBC Radio Four's Today programme reported this morning.

Violent crime, particularly drug related crime, has dramatically reduced, Today reported.

Moss Side and neighbouring Hulme have gained£150m inward investment since 1990.

Barbara McLoughlin, chief executive of Hulme Regeneration, told the programme: 'What we're trying to do is recreate a mixed sustainable neighbourhood.'

More than 2,000 flats have been demolished and a more stable neighbourhood developed, she said.

But the area's underlying economic problems and the drug culture remain, Today reported.
