Prime Minister Andrew Holness, has promised to address the urban decay of the troubled West Kingston constituency.

Mr. Holness says there’s an unfortunate correlation between crime and the state of buildings in the community.

The Prime Minister was speaking during a tour of the constituency on Saturday.

He says, unfortunately, West Kingston has been neglected for some time.
