HULL has been awarded its second Purple Flag for offering a safe and enjoyable night out.
Inspectors for the Association of Town Centre Management carried out an inspection of the city centre and its night time economy last November.
The city secured its first Purple Flag in 2012.
The association has applauded the excellent relationship between the police and other partners, including the Street Angels, Street Marshals and the door staff at licensed premises.
Kathryn Shillito, of Hull Business Improvement District, said: "We are all very proud of the city and our partners as we repeat our previous success.
"So much has happened to improve our city centre during those two years, but while that gives us all greater satisfaction it also increases expectations.
"We knew we had to be even better this time, and we got there as a result of the dedication of our partners and the city centre businesses."
Matthew Grove, Humberside's police and crime commissioner, said: "I am delighted all the hard work by the partners involved in Purple Flag has paid off and the city centre has received the award for another two years.
"Since 2012, Hull city centre has become a much safer place at night with alcohol related crime and violence falling, which means fewer victims of crime."
