Hello, PCSO Jen Atkinson with your weekly update.

I hope you are keeping safe during these uncertain times. Please keep following government guidance, and only leave home for essential reasons. The neighbourhood team will continue to take action against households and individuals who breach regulations.

Parents, it is your responsibility to know where your children are.

I would like to take the opportunity to thank you for your continued assistance with the issues in relation to off-road bikes. On Monday evening a bike was seized, and the rider will appear in court soon for driving offences. We work hard to tackle the problem and fully appreciate how frustrating the noise, mess and disruption these riders cause. We would ask that residents continue to report riders, and send us images and CCTV, of course this can all be done anonymously.

We are working with partner agencies, to secure funding and are always looking at new and innovative ways to tackle the problem.
