On the Beat: With Insp Geoff Carter

It has been a busy week for my staff here in the South East.

PC Alan Tissington led a multi-agency operation on Minsthorpe Lane looking at commercial vehicles.

One was found to have red diesel in its tank and Her Majesties customs Officers gave a £500 on the spot fine.

We also looked at scrap collectors, as we’re keen to ensure that all collectors in the area are registered to help stop the spread of stolen metal.

We’re happy to report everyone we spoke to had their paperwork in order.

THIS week there has been a burglary in Hemsworth where the offenders were able to reach through an insecure window overnight.

Please remember to keep your windows closed to prevent such opportunist thieves.

WE have also held a day of action in Ackworth, after members of the community reported speeding vehicles.

We also looked out for HGVs breaking the weight restrictions in part of the village
