  • Several vehicle windscreens were smashed – person being questioned in connection with this.
  • Reports of bogus callers on older residents trying to force 'landscaping' work on them – 101 was called & Police are aware.

Surrounding areas:

Police advice received:

  • There were several thefts from unsecured vehicles in the surrounding
  • villages. Police advise removing all possible items from any vehicle and
  • ensuring it is locked and alarmed.
  • There have been several shed/garage break ins locally. Police advise all
  • sheds/garages be alarmed if possible & any items of value, ie bikes, are
  • double locked when stored and kept out of sight if possible.

There has been a spate of holiday fraud. Fraudsters contact victims by phone/email offering very low cost trips, but these do not exist and the money handed over is stolen.

Please remember, 101 is the number for reporting non-urgent crimes, i.e. shed break ins etc. If you feel you are at risk in any way, by being threatened or intimidated, please dial 999.
