Here is the latest Neighbourhood Policing update from PCSOs Wright, Cornforth and Moya-Flood.

Shopliftings remain a priority of the neighbourhood team with the CO-OP, Lloyds Pharmacy and Tesco still being occasionally targeted by shoplifters. We continue to provide support to shop staff and provide a high visibility presence within the Square and Parade.

This building is extremely unsafe is not a suitable location for groups of teenagers and young adults to be congregating in and is suspected drug use has taken place inside the property. We have recently identified a group of teenage boys who have been gaining access to the building and they are being dealt with accordingly. We urge residents in the area to remain vigilant and report any suspicious activity using the police non-emergency number 101.
