Shoplifters steal drink

FURTHER shoplifting offences have been reported at the Precinct in Hadston, the parish council has heard.

PC Paul Dent said alcohol was stolen from the Co-op and advice had been given to staff to avoid putting drinks promotions near to the shop entrance.

He added that CCTV was being viewed to try to identify those reponsible and make an arrest.

Coun Julie Milnes said smashed bottles were regularly found on the corner of Chevington Avenue, which were having to be swept up by residents.

It was agreed to raise the issue at the next beat meeting.
