Hello everybody, hope you and your families are well and you have not over indulged in Easter eggs.

This week has been a very busy week, in terms of us working over the Easter Bank Holiday weekend. Again we continue to see an increase in calls around the misuse of off road bikes at various locations across the town. I would encourage residents to report any information you have about these bikes to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111. If your information leads to bikes being recovered that have been involved in crime then you may be eligible for a cash reward.

I would like to reassure all residents that we take all complaints around off road bikes seriously. Also over the past couple of weeks we have seen an increase in damage being caused to vehicles by unknown persons scratching cars.

Again, I would like to encourage residents to report any damage to the police, as well as checking any private CCTV cameras and sending the details into the team. Stay safe.

Police Constable 2696, Mike Welch
