Damage to motor vehicles

There have recently been an increase in the number of incidents of damage to motor vehicles around the village.  The majority of these were due to a mini crime spree on Wednesday 11th November and believed to be by local youths.  The police are working very hard to try to identify those responsible but witnesses are difficult to find and where suspects were seen there have been only vague descriptions.  The police will be concentrating on the two roads most affected but would like anyone with any information to get in touch.

Did you see anything connected with these incidents ?  Do you have any information, however minor it appears ?  Please report it by dialling 101 (the police non-emergency number) or make contact with our local officers in the village (they are available at the Beat Surgery held each month).  Information can also be passed on anonymously by using Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111

Scam phone calls

We have had reports recently of calls concerning the setting up of emergency alert systems in your home.  These are obviously targeted at elderly residents and suggest that they can arrange direct access to the emergency services including the Social Services departments.  They usually also say that they already have people working in the area at the moment on properties close by.

Of course all they require is your bank details in order to set it up for you.

It is a scam.

Put the phone down and ignore it.

Theft of fuel from vehicles.

There has recently been two incidents in the village (Walnut Avenue and Copeland Road) of thefts of fuel from vehicles.  In both cases the fuel tank had a hole drilled into the bottom and fuel drained out.

Please be vigilant at all times and report any suspicious activity around parked vehicles whether on roadways or private drives.
