Few crime concerns

THREE-QUARTERS of Morpeth residents surveyed by police said they have no crime concerns.

Morpeth Neighbourhood Policing Team has been talking to locals to help prioritise officers’ work.

The most common issues raised were noise and dog fouling, as well as anti-social behaviour.

Police are working with partners to try to address the concerns and monthly consultation with residents will continue.
