Local councillors, Alex Rowley, Willie Clark and Peter Lockhart also attended to lend support to the initiative which runs every Friday night between 8.30pm and 10pm.

Mr Brown praised all those involved in the initiative and said "Fife is proving that it wins when people come together"
Cllr Rowley congratulated those supporting the venture and added "well done to those taking part"
The midnight league is free to youths and there is no need to register, just turn up on the night.
